Creating a Signature Pad Using Canvas and ASP.NET Core Razor Pages

In one of our projects, we needed to add the possibility to add signatures to PDF documents. A technician fills out a checklist online and a responsible person and the technician need to sign the checklist afterward. The signatures then get embedded into a generated PDF document together with the results of the checklist. The signatures must be created on a web UI, running on an iPad Pro.
It was pretty clear that we needed to use the HTML5 canvas element and to capture the pointer movements. Fortunately, we stumbled upon a pretty cool library on GitHub, created by Szymon Nowak from Poland. It is the super awesome Signature Pad written in TypeScript and available as an NPM and Yarn package. It is also possible to use a CDN to use the Signature Pad.
