Mastering SVG

By: Rob Larsen

Overview of this book

SVG is the most powerful image format in use on the web. In addition to producing resolution-independent images for today's multi-device world, SVG allows you to create animations and visualizations to add to your sites and applications. The simplicity of cross-platform markup, mixed with familiar modern web languages, such as CSS and JavaScript, creates a winning combination for designers and developers alike. In this book, you will learn how to author an SVG document using common SVG features, such as elements and attributes, and serve SVG on the web using simple configuration tips for common web servers. You will also use SVG elements and images in HTML documents. Further, you will use SVG images for a variety of common tasks, such as manipulating SVG elements, adding animations using CSS, mastering the basic JavaScript SVG (API) using Document Object Model (DOM) methods, and interfacing SVG with common libraries and frameworks, such as React, jQuery, and Angular. You will then build an understanding of the Snap.svg and SVG.js APIs, along with the basics of D3, and take a look at how to implement interesting visualizations using the library. By the end of the book, you will have mastered creating animations with SVG.

Manipulating SVG with Angular

Moving on from AngularJS, let's take a look at the modern evolution of Angular. Angular 2.+ (referred to just as Angular) is a thoroughly modern framework. It's traditionally written in TypeScript, a super-set of JavaScript that adds optional features that Angular takes advantage of to add some incredibly convenient features and functionality to the library.

Getting started with Angular

Since Angular is a newer framework and has a much larger footprint, we'll go through a little bit of the setup to get you going. The code in the downloaded examples will work, but knowing how you get there is pretty useful. So, let's get set up. 

This Angular example will replicate the exact same demo that the AngularJS example provided redone using Angular code. As you've probably already sensed and will continue to learn, the basic issues with dynamic SVG are the same no matter what library or framework you're using; the solutions are just slightly different. 


You can use whatever...
