There seem to be several chemistry diagramming or web-based chemical structure editor tools. These provide samples and examples showing how these libraries could work for you:

ChemAxon - Marvin JS | Live Example
ChemWriter | Examples
Scilligence - JSDraw 2
SciTouch - Ketcher | Examples
Chemene JSDraw

It certainly looks like there is a healthy collection of tools to fiddle with and integrate into your work. Some are commercial, open source and so forth. Just evaluate those and look around for other options.
