    Yes, I'm not aware of any way to use either the canvas api or webgl directly. This project has bindings for the canvas API, but it hasn't been updated in two years: SkiaSharp seems a nice option too: It supports graphics across a whole load of platforms, including Blazor on the web.

    My initial attempt at this was to use the Blazor.Extensions.Canvas package to do this much the same way I had with F# - I expected their might be excessive interop cost around putImageData (how you update the underlying data) but it seemed a good place to start. Unfortunately the authors of that package have not exposed that method so that quickly stymied that.
