Method Draw

Method Draw is a web based vector drawing application. The purpose of Method Draw is to provide a simple and easy-to-use SVG editor experience. It purposely removes some features such as layers and line-caps/corners in exchange for a more simple and pleasant experience. If you are looking for a more complete vector editing open-source solution, please check out SVG Edit.

Method Draw


Develop and run a local web server under src;

cd src
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000

or if you have Python 3:

cd src
python -m http.server 8000


Install dev dependencies:

npm install

Then you can build into dist by running:

gulp build

Deploy dist to your static file server of choice.
