# WHy SVG matter

  • Can be Tiny, extremely Tiny
    • 2kB gzipped
    • Comparedd to HEro images which are 100 of KBs
  • Almost 2/3rds of our performance budgets are spent on busted on images
  • Bitmaps vs vector graphics
    • Bitmaps are like Battleship game from childhood, A2, b7
  • Beautyful and performant animations
  • Accessable settings
  • Scales with container
  • Adjust Logos on the fly
  • Can use it for Layout too
    • preserve aspect ration none
      • scale to whatever container it is in

# What purpose does xmlns=“http://www.w3.org/2000/svg & version=“1.1” serve?

A thorough explanation would be too much for a post or even a topic. As can be seen here https://www.w3.org/TR/2011/REC-SVG11-20110816/intro.html#NamespaceAndDTDIdentifiers 410 the “xmlns” is “XML Namespace” which is needed to use the correct “DTD” - “Doctype Declaration” Kind of like the “rules” about what elements are allowed, what attributes elements can have, what child tags elements can have, what parent tags elements can have, what they must have, etc.

In other words, it’s kind of like a way of telling browsers “parse the mark-up according to these rules”

How, or even If, browsers actually parse according to the DTD varies, but having a definition to go by is a good thing.


All user agents (browsers) ignore the version attribute, so you can always drop that.

If you embed your SVG inline in a HTML page and serve that page as text/html then xmlns attributes are not required. Embedding SVG inline in HTML documents is a fairly recent innovation that came along as part of HTML5.

If however you serve your page as image/svg+xml or application/xhtml+xml or any other MIME type that causes the user agent to use an XML parser then the xmlns attributes are required. This was the only way to do things until recently so there is a lot of content served like this.

# SVG animations

[SVG Animation - WIkipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scalable_Vector_Graphics#Scripting_and_animation)

SVG drawings can be dynamic and interactive. Time-based modifications to the elements can be described in SMIL, or can be programmed in a scripting language (e.g. ECMAScript or JavaScript). The W3C explicitly recommends SMIL as the standard for animation in SVG.[8]

A rich set of event handlers such as "onmouseover" and "onclick" can be assigned to any SVG graphical object to apply actions and events.

SVG images, being XML, contain many repeated fragments of text, so they are well suited for lossless data compression algorithms. When an SVG image has been compressed with the gzip algorithm, it is referred to as an "SVGZ" image and uses the corresponding .svgz filename extension. Conforming SVG 1.1 viewers will display compressed images.[9] An SVGZ file is typically 20 to 50 percent of the original size.[10] W3C provides SVGZ files to test for conformance.[11]

SMIL Animation Specification 2001 https://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-smil-animation-20010904/

Vector graphics editors typically allow translation, rotation, mirroring, stretching, skewing, affine transformations, changing of z-order (loosely, what's in front of what) and combination of primitives into more complex objects.

More sophisticated transformations include set operations on closed shapes (union, difference, intersection, etc.).

Vector graphics are ideal for simple or composite drawings that need to be device-independent, or do not need to achieve photo-realism. For example, the PostScript and PDF page description languages use a vector graphics model.

Content Type: application/smil+xml


Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL (/ˈsmaɪl/)) is a World Wide Web Consortium recommended Extensible Markup Language (XML) markup language to describe multimedia presentations. It defines markup for timing, layout, animations, visual transitions, and media embedding, among other things. SMIL allows presenting media items such as text, images, video, audio, links to other SMIL presentations, and files from multiple web servers. SMIL markup is written in XML, and has similarities to HTML.

SMIL 3.0 became a W3C Recommendation in December 2008. It was first submitted as a W3C Working draft on December 21, 2006.[2] The last draft revision was released on October 6, 2008.[3][4]

The internet video site Hulu uses SMIL as part of its media playing technology.[citation needed]

So you are looking for raster to vector graphics converter/tracer. potrace & autotrace both are in Ubuntu repository. Myself I tried potrace before which gave nice results with default options. As I remember, both tools do not support compressed formats as input, only bitmap images.

See Potrace examples convert [input-options] input-file [output-options] output-file his embeds a raster image in the SVG instead of converting to a vector image

potrace 1.16. Transforms bitmaps into vector graphics.

BMP is both uncompressed and lossless. PNG is compressed but lossless. Thus, with a lossless format the only visible difference is the file size. I'd recommend using PNG over BMP unless you can't for compatibility reasons.

There's no quality difference between BMP & PNG format (except PNG is compressed using deflate algorithm).

BMP8 can be compressed using RLE (run-length-encoding) algorithm, but BMP16/24/32/64 doesn't support compression yet.

BMP32 support alpha channel just like PNG32 support transparency.
