Using macSVG with WordPress
By default, WordPress does not display SVG documents. However, it is possible to install WordPress plug-ins to allow SVG documents to be displayed and managed like standard image files.
One WordPress plug-in used on this site is the SVG Support plug-in. The “Restrict to Administrators” option is recommended. It is advisable to analyze security issues before allowing non-administrators to upload SVG documents to your WordPress. If in doubt, it is safer to use the “Restrict to Administrators” option.
Using macSVG with Inkscape
Inkscape is a high-quality open-source application for SVG design, and it is useful with macSVG. Inkscape provides many import and drawing capabilities that macSVG currently lacks, and macSVG can be used to add animation to SVG documents created with SVG.
Inkscape has some notes on SVG at https://inkscape.org/en/learn/animation/.
Using macSVG with Google Chrome Browser
But on August 17, 2016, the Chromium development team announced that SVG SMIL animation will remain as a supported feature in Chrome until viable CSS standards are available for the current SMIL functions:
“However, your feedback has made it clear that removing SMIL today would be taking away a feature that our community relies on. For example, the most common use case of SMIL is to animate SVG content inside image tags. While in theory CSS animations can animate this content, there are still missing features and bugs on all platforms that make SMIL a better option for now. For example, motion-path, path morphing, and the subset of SVG properties for which animation is supported all vary between platforms and browsers.”
So SVG SMIL will remain available in Chrome for the foreseeable time. The open-source macSVG application currently has basic support for inline CSS editing, which could evolve to support SVG CSS animation someday.
