Android SVG Icon template

This is a collection of SVG templates for creating Android material design launcher icons. They are clean enough to be used directly with a text-editor, but contain all necessary metadata to edit in Inkscape.

To render bitmaps for APKs and store listings, you should check out avianey/androidsvgdrawable-plugin.

This page and SVG images are available on GitHub at aeirola/android-svg-icon-template.
