What does it do?

deSVG takes the <img /> tags you supply. It then grabs, using AJAX, the raw SVG you've set in the src attribute and replaces that <img /> with the <svg /> it downloads.


Grab the files from this repo, or install from npm


window.addEventListener('load', function(){
 	// 1. selector for the <img /> tags to replace
 	// 2. whether to strip inline style tags from SVG paths
	deSVG('.replace-svg', true);

If you do not wish for two network requests to be made per image, instead of using the src attribute, you can pass in the images path via data-src="path/to/file". Note that this may cause layouts to jump and no image to be displayed whilst it is being fetched.
