Canvas Pixel Manipulation

JavaScript performance comparison

Revision 53 of this test case created by Russell Chapman

Preparation code

<canvas id="canvas" height="600" width="600">
</canvas>
      
<script>
Benchmark.prototype.setup = function() {
  var canvas = document.getElementById('canvas');
  var canvasWidth = canvas.width;
  var canvasHeight = canvas.height;
  var ctx = canvas.getContext('2d');
  var imageData = ctx.getImageData(0, 0, canvasWidth, canvasHeight);
  
  var data = imageData.data;
  
  var buf = new ArrayBuffer(imageData.data.length);
  var buf8 = new Uint8ClampedArray(buf);
  var data32 = new Uint32Array(buf);
  
  var indexLookup = [];
  for (var y = 0; y < canvasHeight; y++) {
    indexLookup[y] = y * canvasWidth;
  }

};

Benchmark.prototype.teardown = function() {
  ctx.putImageData(imageData, 0, 0);

};
</script>

Preparation code output
