Svg Spatial Sort
Reasonably efficient, greedy, path planning for plotting svg files.
Install locally using:
./setup.py [install | develop] --user
Use from the terminal like this:
svgsort input.svg out.svg
This will break down paths into continous sub paths before sorting. it will also allow travelling along paths (once) in both directions.
The default behaviour is to fit the result into an A3 sheet of paper. It will

--dim=A4 or, eg.,
--dim=30x40. To disable centering entirely use
To ensure every path is drawn twice (once in each direction), you can use
You can disable splitting with
--no-split. To see other options:
The code in
svgsort/svgpaththools is from
https://github.com/mathandy/svgpathtools. With only minor changes by me. I had

include it here. See the LICENSE file.
Strip out larger parts of svgpathtools, and refactor?
This code is a tool for my own use. I release it publicly in case people find it useful. It is not however intended as a collaboration/Open Source project. As such I am unlikely to accept PRs, reply to issues, or take requests.
