Python-based SVG editor
This is an utility package that helps to edit and concatenate SVG files. It is especially directed at scientists preparing final figures for submission to journal. So far it supports arbitrary placement and scaling of svg figures and adding markers, such as labels.
See a blog post for a short tutorial.
You can install svgutils from Python Package Index (PyPI) using the pip utility:
pip install svgutils --user
Note that the pip will attempt to install lxml library if it is not already installed. For the installation to be sucessful, you need development libraries of libxml2 and libxslt1. On Ubuntu and other Debian-derived Linux distributions you can install them via:
sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt-dev
To install system-wide (needs administrator privilages):
python setup.py install
To install locally (do not forget to add
$HOME/python/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ to your Python path):
python setup.py install --user
The package is distributed under MIT license (see LICENSE file for information).
svg_stack is a similar package that layouts multiple SVG files automatically (in a Qt-style).
