RubySVGLight

Gem Version

Install

gem install ruby_svg_light

Usage

Create a new document (canvas) with RubySVGLight::Document.new then add the shapes you require to it. Finally use to_file to generate the file or call to_s to return the string of the SVG (useful for webapps).

Shapes available (x and y starting coordinates and cx and cy center of circle and ellipse)

circle(cx, cy, radius)
rectangle(x, y, width, height)
line(x, y, width, height)
text(x, y, 'text')
ellipse(cx, cy, horizontal_radius, vertical_radius)

All can take a options hash as a final option. Supported options are:

options[:stroke]       
options[:stroke_width] 
options[:fill]         
options[:font_size]    

Global options can also be set by passing to new or options, as seen in second example.

Examples

require 'ruby_svg_light'
a = RubySVGLight::Document.new()
a.circle(20,10,10)
a.to_file('test.svg')

From version 0.1.0 blocks can be used:

# Implicit Block
RubySVGLight::Document.generate("implicit.svg") do
  circle(10,20,30)
end

# Explicit Block
RubySVGLight::Document.generate("explicit.svg") do |svg|
  svg.circle(10,20,30)
end

Second Example, From the Examples directory

require 'ruby_svg_light'
canvas = RubySVGLight::Document.new
canvas.circle(40,40,20)
canvas.rectangle(80,20,40,40)
canvas.line(20,80,100,0)
canvas.line(20,105,100,0)

#Set Global Options
options = {:font_size=>'12px'}
canvas.options(options)
canvas.text(20,100, 'HelloWorld!')

#Set Local Options
canvas.text(20,130, 'HelloWorld!', {:font_size=>'18px'})

canvas.to_file('shapes.svg')

Text placment options

canvas.text(0,20, 'HelloWorld!', {:text_horizontal_centre=>true})
canvas.text(0,0,  'HelloWorld!', {:text_vertical_centre=>true})
# Centre Horizontally and Vertically
canvas.text(0,40, 'HelloWorld!', {:text_centre=>true})

TODO

Add support for path
