    SharpVG

    Sharp Vector Graphics

    A library and command line utility to convert bitmaps to SVGs.

    Why?

    • SVG is currently the only static cross-browser way to scale up pixelated graphics with preserving sharpness of the pixels that works across browsers.
    • Converting to SVG might be useful in other scenarios, for example when we want to manipulate the image in real time.

    Features!

    • converts gifs to SVGs
    • colour! (one path for each colour)
    • fancy edge-tracing algorithm to maximally optimise output size

    Examples!

    Check out the icons at http://brainshave.com :-) . They're included in this repo and you can generate them by running npm test. (Included only for testing purposes, so please don't use them anywhere.)

    Usage (CLI):

    sharpvg file.gif > file.svg
    

    Usage (node, simple):

    var sharpvg = require("sharpvg")
    var svg = sharpvg(fs.readFileSync("file.gif"))
    

    Usage (browserified, so should work with AMD and as a global, gif decoding is not available):

    var image = canvas.getContext("2d").getImageData(0, 0, 100, 100);
    var svg = sharpvg(image.data, image.width, image.height);
    

    Usage (node, step by step):

    var gif = require("sharpvg/gif")
    var svg = require("sharpvg/svg")
    
    // raw file buffer:
    var raw = fs.readFileSync("file.gif")
    
    // 2-dim array of 1s and 0s:
    var bitmap = gif(raw)
    
    // producing svg is a separate step so we can take the bitmap from
    // different source
    var image = svg(bitmap)
    

    Planned features:

    • PNG input
    • animated gif support

    LICENSE: Source code: MIT, see COPYING, icons (gif files in spec directory): only for testing purposes.
