Barkeep - the friendly code review system Animated line drawing in SVG - Posted 29 July 2013 using tired fingers There's a demo you're missing here because JavaScript or inline SVG isn't available. I like using diagrams as a way of showing information flow or browser behaviour, but large diagrams can be daunting at first glance. When I gave talks about the Application Cache and rendering performance I started with a blank screen and made the diagrams appear to draw themselves bit by bit as I described the process. Here's how it's done: Paths in SVG Paths in SVG are defined in a format that competes with regex in terms of illegibility: I use Inkscape to create the non-human-readable bits of SVG. Each part of the d attribute is telling the renderer to move to a particular point, start a line, draw a Bézier curve to another point, etc etc. The prospect of animating this data so the line progressively draws is, well, terrifying. There's a demo you're missing here because JavaScript, inline SVG or input[type=range] isn't available. Animating it More fun with dashes
