Convert a PDF file to a directory of SVG files.



This shell script uses inkscape to convert a pdf to a directotry of svgs.

USAGE: pdf2svg [pdf file]

SVG files are saved in the $(basename $pdffilename .pdf) directory and are named by page number.


First, install inkscape and pdftk. On Debian, it would be this.

apt-get install inkscape pdftk

Then you can either install from npm

npm install -g pdf2svg

or just copy the included pdf2svg to a directory in your $PATH.
