Web based SVG-editor
|Initial release||February 6, 2009|
|Stable release||2.7 / April 7, 2014|
|Type||Vector graphics editor|
|License||MIT License (free software license)|
SVG-edit is a vector graphics editor intended for users who need to do quick edits to existing Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) images and do not want to use proprietary or open-source software that requires installation.
SVG-edit works in any modern browser:
- Firefox 1.5+
- Opera 9.50+
- Safari 4+
- Chrome 1+
- Internet Explorer 6+ had been supported as of version 2.6 (with the Chrome Frame plugin) and may still work for some features, but only IE 9+ will be supported going forward
SVG-edit consists of two major components: svg-editor.js and svgcanvas.js. These components work cooperatively. File svgcanvas.js can be used outside of SVG-edit, allowing developers to create alternative interfaces to the canvas. Do not confuse this term with HTML5 Canvas element, canvas is a drawing area (div) here.
SVG-edit was first announced by Narendra Sisodiya on 6 Feb 2009 in its minimal version. Version 2.0 was developed by Pavol Rusnak and released on 3 June 2009. The current stable release is 2.7.
