about this item

Using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) for illustrations only scratches the surface of this format’s potential on the web. With this practical guide, you’ll learn how to use SVG not only for illustrations but also as graphical documents that you can integrate into complex HTML5 web pages, and style with custom CSS. Web developers will discover ways to adapt designs by adding data based graphics, dynamic styles, interaction, or animation.

Divided into five parts, this book includes:

  • SVG on the web: Understand how SVG works with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to define graphics
  • Drawing with markup: Learn the vector language of x and y coordinates that let SVG create basic and custom shapes
  • Putting graphics in their place: Use the coordinate system to draw SVG shapes and text at different scales and positions
  • Artistic touches: Explore how color is used, how strokes are created and manipulated, and how graphical effects like filters, clipping, and masking are applied
  • SVG as an application: Make your graphic more accessible to humans and computers, and learn how to make it interactive or animated

Unlike other image formats, SVG can be an interactive part of your web site, integrated in HTML5 markup or created dynamically using JavaScript. It can be styled by CSS to instantly adapt to changes in your site's design. Flexible metadata options can make the graphics accessible to screen readers and search engines. And it is always displayed at the highest resolution possible, without requiring larger file sizes, making it ideal for both widescreen desktop displays and Retina mobile devices.

Using SVG with CSS3 and HTML5 starts with the basics, explaining how simple shapes and icons are defined in SVG, and then builds upon that foundation to create complex graphics and interactive, animated applications. It covers all the features you're likely to come across in web design, while avoiding areas with poor browser support.
