SVG-edit is a fast, web-based, JavaScript-driven SVG drawing editor that works in any modern browser.

Demo

Try SVG-edit here

See the latest release (or its ES6-Module version, which requires a modern browser).

You may also try it at https://unpkg.com/svgedit/editor/svg-editor.html (which redirects to a versioned URL).

You may also obtain URLs for specific releases.

For testing the latest version in master, you may use https://raw.githack.com/SVG-Edit/svgedit/master/editor/svg-editor.html.

Installation

Quick install

  1. Clone or copy the repository contents (at least the editor directory).
  2. If you need programmatic customization, see its section below.
  3. Otherwise, just add an iframe to your site, adding any extensions or configuration (see docs/tutorials/ConfigOptions.md ([ConfigOptions]{@tutorial ConfigOptions})) within the URL:
<iframe src="svgedit/editor/svg-editor.html?extensions=" width="100%" height="100%"></iframe>

Note that if you want support for the following browsers, you will at least need some polyfills.

For Android Browser 4.4.3-4.4.4, you will need at least fetch.

For the following, you will need at least URL, Promise, and fetch:

  • IE <= 11
  • IE Mobile
  • Opera Mini
  • Blackberry Browser <= 10

And for still older browsers (e.g., IE 8), you will at minimum need a querySelector polyfill.

Integrating SVG-edit into your own npm package

These steps are only needed if you wish to set up your own npm package incorporating SVGEdit.

  1. Create your npm package: npm init (complete the fields).
  2. Install SVG-edit into your package: npm i svgedit.
  3. Look within node_modules/svgedit/, e.g., node_modules/svgedit/editor/svg-editor.html for the files your package needs and use accordingly.
  4. npm publish

Programmatic customization

  1. If you are not concerned about supporting ES6 Modules (see the "ES6 Modules file" section), you can add your config directly to svgedit-config-iife.js within the SVG-Edit project root.
  2. Note: Do not remove the import svgEditor... code which is responsible for importing the SVG edit code. Versions prior to 3.0 did not require this, but the advantage is that your HTML does not need to be polluted with extra script references.
  3. Modify or utilize any options. See docs/tutorials/ConfigOptions.md ([ConfigOptions]{@tutorial ConfigOptions}).

ES6 Modules file

  1. svg-editor-es.html is an HTML file directly using ES6 modules. It is only supported in the latest browsers. It is probably mostly useful for debugging, as it requires more network requests. If you would like to work with this file, you should make configuration changes in svgedit-config-es.js (in the SVG-Edit project root).
  2. If you are working with the ES6 Modules config but also wish to work with the normal svg-editor.html version (so your code can work in older browsers or get the presumable performance benefits of this file which references JavaScript rolled up into a single file), you can follow these steps after any config changes you make, so that your changes can also be automatically made available to both versions.
  3. JavaScript: 1. Run npm install within the node_modules/svgedit directory to install the build tools for SVG-edit. 1. Run npm run build-config within the node_modules/svgedit directory.
    1. This will rebuild svgedit-config-iife.js (applying Babel to allow it to work on older browsers and applying Rollup to build all JavaScript into one file). The file will then contain non-ES6 module JavaScript that can work in older browsers. Note that it bundles all of SVGEdit, so it is to be expected that this file will be much larger in size than the original ES6 config file.
  4. HTML: 1. If you wish to make changes to both HTML files, it is recommended that you work and test on svg-editor-es.html and then run npm run build-html to have the changes properly copied to svg-editor.html.
