[Plugin] jQuery Holed Div

Recently I needed to create a holed div, like this:

I haven't found any good solution to create a holed div without using images, so I tried to use canvas as a background and it worked nicely.

Anyway I wanted to share my result to everyone, maybe it'll be useful to someone else :)
So I created a jQuery Plugin called jquery.holedDiv.

Here's a demo: demo

Download Latest This version may not work, because is used for testing, so download the minified version.

Download Minified (0.1.1)

Update: code uploaded to bitbucket (see below)


      'padding': 10,
      'radius': 10, //0 if you don't want rounded borders
      'stroke': false, //if you want to add a (black) stroke to the background
      'holeRadius': 20,
      'drawInner': true, //if you want to draw an inner circle, like the demo
      'drawInnerColor': 'black' //the color of the inner circle

Tested On:
