SVG-edit is a web-based free and open-source vector graphics editor. It can be used to create and edit Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) images from within a web browser, not requiring additional software installation.

Browsers supported[edit]

SVG-edit works in any modern browser:

SVG-edit is a cross-browser web-based, JavaScript-driven web tool, and has also been made into browser addons, such as an addon for Firefox,[2] a Chrome App,[3] and a standalone widget for Opera.[4] An experimental SVG editing extension to MediaWiki uses SVG-edit.[5]


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.

Version history[edit]

SVG-edit was first announced by Narendra Sisodiya on 6 Feb 2009 in its minimal version.[6] Version 2.0 was developed by Pavol Rusnak and released on 3 June 2009.[7] The current stable release is 2.8.1.[8]
