HTML5 Canvas Opacity Tutorial

To set a shape opacity with Konva, we can set the opacity property when we instantiate the shape, or we can use the opacity() method.

Shapes can have an opacity value between 0 and 1, where 0 is fully transparent, and 1 is fully opaque. Unless otherwise specified, all shapes are defaulted with an opacity value of 1.

Instructions: Mouseover the pentagon to change its opacity.
