SVG, Scalable Vector Graphics, has found its place as one of the key building blocks of the modern web developer's toolkit. It has been on the radar for a while, but with full native browser support across the board and important enhancements in SVG 2, it's time for SVG to take center stage. As SVG 2, the format offers responsive vector images, a solid scripting language, robust animation, and excellent integration with the traditional web development stack of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and server-side languages. Pro SVG 2 begins by taking you through the ways of creating SVG content, by export from popular graphics packages, dedicated tools, or by direct scripting. You'll then see how to integrate SVG seamlessly into your sites, providing an enhanced visitor experience through scalable, customizable graphics. You'll see how those core features of SVG are a perfect match for responsive web design, and how you can create a beautifully dynamic website. This includes creating animations for mobile devices without requiring Flash or JavaScript. The book also describes in detail how to incorporate fallback and support options for visitors using older browsers. The book also details how SVG is a boon for creating accessible content, and how you can use sever-side technologies to generate SVG on the fly - perfect for creating dynamic charts and data visualizations. Written for modern designer-developers, Pro SVG 2 features practical solutions that can be used today, for every website.
