Introducing macSVG


November 20, 2017 – macSVG v1.1.1 is released, with improvements to the SVG web view rulers, the XML outline view, and drag-and-drop functions.

macSVG is a MIT-licensed open-source macOS application for designing and editing Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) content for HTML5 web pages, mobile apps, animation design, and general graphics usage.

SVG is an open-source format for computer graphics documents based on the authoritative Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 1.1 (Second Edition) – W3C Recommendation 16 August 2011 from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and is supported on most modern web browsers, and many application frameworks.

macSVG can produce dynamic, high-quality graphics and animation for HTML5 web views that can be displayed on most major desktop and mobile platforms, including iOS, Android, macOS, Microsoft Windows and Linux.  This video shows an example of SVG animation in macSVG:


For many web pages, SVG documents are a good alternative to other image formats like JPEG, PNG, GIF, Animated GIF, Adobe Flash, and videos.  SVG documents are mostly based on vector graphics, and the file sizes can be much smaller with no loss of quality or detail at any scale or resolution.  An SVG document can also contain contain JPEG and PNG images, so it can blend vector graphics with raster images.
