Making SVGs Responsive with CSS

Making SVGs Responsive with CSS
An article on how to make embedded SVGs cross-browser responsive. We're going to cover embedding techniques, how to apply the "Padding Hack" and how to use inline media queries to make SVGs adaptive. An SVG can be embedded on a web page in many ways; one of which is embedding it inline in an HTML5 page using the <svg> tag. The other commonly used techniques include embedding it as an image using the <img> tag, embedding it using the <object> tag, using an iframe, and as a CSS background image. Conceptually, making an SVG scale as its container scales should be as simple as removing any fixed height and/or width, and specifying a viewBox attribute value. However, due to different browser implementations and inconsistencies, the web isn’t all ponies and rainbows, and making SVGs fluid isn’t quite that straightforward, because the way browsers determine the dimensions of an SVG when embedded in different ways isn’t consistent across all of them.

The parts of the shape inside the path are visible, and the parts outside are invisible. Clip Path Example

Animated line drawing in SVG - 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 The ultimate guide to SVG Imagine you could embed an image in a web page, scale that page to any size, and never lose image quality. Well, you can. It’s totally possible, we just haven’t been doing it as much as we should. Images with fixed sizes such as JPG files, GIFs, and PNGs have their place on the Web, but their inherently static nature conflicts with the way the Web is going. As we move to responsive, flowing designs, the more irritating it gets to have to deal with images that are fundamentally not responsive. It’s frustrating beyond belief when I realize that it’s becoming best practice to create and serve several different versions of each image on your site.

Creating SVG line drawing animations May 7, 2015 Recently, I came across a very nice page on the Square Space site while surfing the web. The page features some nice animations. which improve the user experience. The animations are implemented with the Scrollr jQuery plugin, an elegant way of performing scroll based page animations. However, what caught my eye was the SVG line animation.

SVG Masks The SVG masking feature makes it possible to apply a mask to an SVG shape. The mask determines what parts of the SVG shape that is visible, and with what transparency. You can think of an SVG mask as a more advanced version of a clip path. Mask Example Here is a simple mask example:

Fonts and TeX - TeX Users Group In principle, TeX can use any font for which it has metrics (character widths, kerning, etc.), and shapes (these days, generally PostScript Type 1 or TrueType or OpenType). A couple notable articles on basic font concepts and usage in LaTeX: For additional information of all kinds: Font licensing is a perennial and troublesome topic. Styling – SVG 1.1 (Second Edition) Contents 6.1 SVG's styling properties SVG uses styling properties to describe many of its document parameters. Styling properties define how the graphics elements in the SVG content are to be rendered.

Draggable SVG element A common form of computer interaction is the ability to move an element on the screen by clicking on it and dragging it. This can achieved relatively easily in an SVG as below. I used this techique a lot for the interactive demos in my SVG tutorial.
