React mindee is a very opinionated JavaScript library that will help you build interactive canvas for computer vision detection use cases.#

There are many powerful JavaScript frameworks and tools that can help you make an interactive canvas. But almost all of them are low-level. Like KONVA is a 2d canvas framework. It is good, it is powerful. But you may need to write a lot of code.

This library was made for building frontend interfaces on top of Mindee document parsing APIs and more generally on top of any computer vision detection APIs.
