When we relaunched DN a few weeks back, the profile page's pixel art creator was rebuilt from the ground up. It now includes features like right-click to reverse, and CMD-click to erase.
The next logical step was to give it back to the community that inspired it, so that's why we're open-sourcing Pixel Picker today. It's a jQuery plugin that you can use create the same pixel art as seen on DN.
Have fun! And if you spot a bug, either let us know or submit a PR!

It's really neat to see DN itself putting stuff out there. Very cool, guys!
jQuery... Why not canvas?
