    Node.JS Binding for LibRSVG with prebuilt binaries

    LibRSVG is a SVG rendering library, which parses SVG files and renders them in various formats. The formats include:

    • PNG
    • PDF
    • SVG
    • Raw memory buffer image

    This repository is fork of https://github.com/2gis/node-rsvg with prebuilt binaries. It will be rebased on a regular basis. After spending days on getting the compilation to work under windows, i decided to publish prebuilt binaries of this project.

    Currently available binary releases are:

    Contributing

    You have a cool idea/feature/pull request? Great! Currently the prebuilt binaries are generated against librsvg 2.40.16 so if you plan to use features, please consider compability with at least this version, so the builds won't fail and i don't have to rebuild gtk ;)

    Basic Usage

    Here is a simple example. Look in index.js for more documentation.

    var Rsvg = require('librsvg-prebuilt').Rsvg;
    var fs = require('fs');
     
    // Create SVG render instance.
    var svg = new Rsvg();
     
    // When finishing reading SVG, render and save as PNG image.
    svg.on('finish', function() {
      console.log('SVG width: ' + svg.width);
      console.log('SVG height: ' + svg.height);
      fs.writeFile('tiger.png', svg.render({
        format: 'png',
        width: 600,
        height: 400
      }).data);
    });
     
    // Stream SVG file into render instance.
    fs.createReadStream('tiger.svg').pipe(svg);

    Possible breaking changes

    Before v0.6.0 in case of error getBaseURI returned null. Since v0.6.0 possibly breaking change was introduced: now getBaseURI method always returns string. In case of error an empty string is returned, so it might affect user code that relies on strict equality to null.
