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.

In this chapter, you worked with four common libraries and frameworks, integrating these powerful tools with SVG. 

Starting with jQuery and working your way through AngularJS, Angular, and React, you now have basic experience at integrating SVG with four of the most popular libraries and frameworks on the planet.

Specifically, you learned about setting up applications with each of the frameworks, how to create dynamic components that feature SVG elements and attributes, and how to manipulate those attributes in a dynamic way. 

You also learned about the multiple gotchas when working with SVG and these libraries, including ways to ensure that elements are created properly in jQuery and ensuring that dynamic attributes are properly handled in the Angular frameworks.
