Canonical homepage (including link to source) seems to be:

Interesting to note from the demo that its widget set includes textbox
and multiline textbox.

Also interesting to note how broken they are, e.g. basic editing
controls (menu, context menu, keyboard shortcuts) don't operate.

Whether a library that purports to use <canvas> to "get rid of … heavy
CSS/DOM manipulations" is going to turn around and use backing regions
seems subject to doubt, but maybe.
