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.


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, a Chrome extension, and a standalone widget for Opera.[1] There's also an experimental SVG editing extension on MediaWiki that uses SVG-edit.[2]

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.

Version history[edit]

SVG-edit was first announced by Narendra Sisodiya on 6 Feb 2009 in its minimal version.[3] Version 2.0 was developed by Pavol Rusnak and released on 3 June 2009.[4] The current stable release is 5.0.0.[5]
