   RE: [xml-dev] What are people using SVG for?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm converting from another declarative, industry-specific graphics file
format to SVG so that it can be displayed in a browser.  Just proof of
concept so far; what I'd like eventually to do is to set up a server with
Apache and Cocoon where you can submit files to be converted and displayed.
Since I don't normally do thin client development, all are bright shiny
objects to this babe's eyes.   <coo> <gurgle>

The one interesting twist is that the original format has links to
Encapsulated PostScript files.  Fortunately these are small, and can be
converted quite easily in Python using PythonMagick:

from PythonMagick import *

img = Image( './foo.eps' )
img.write( './foo.jpg' )

And these can be referenced directly in SVG. I mean, how much lazier can it
