License, donations, and other boilerplate
Licensed under either the WTFPL or CC0, at your choice. In practice, that means it's more or less public domain, and you can do whatever you want with it. Giving credit is not required, but still very much appreciated! I'd love to hear from you if this module was useful to you.
Creating and maintaining open-source modules is a lot of work. A donation is also not required, but much appreciated! You can donate here.
A runnable version of this example can be found in
example.js in the repository.
"use strict";const Promise = ;const fs = ;const path = ;const detectSVGScripts = ;Promise;
Scans the given
source SVG content for scripts.
- source: The SVG to scan, as either a string, buffer, or readable Node.js stream.
Returns a Promise that resolves to an array of found scripts. Each item includes some metadata, and there are various
- eventHandler: Inline event handler, like an
attributeproperty specifies the name of the handler.
- inlineScriptTag: Inline
<script>block. No additional metadata is included.
- externalScriptFile: A
<script src="...">tag, ie. one that references an external file. The
fileproperty specifies the path of that file.
The Promise may also reject, with any of the errors that could be caused by sax (which unfortunately doesn't document the possible errors).
