SVG Programming: The Graphical Web by Kurt Cagle

By Kurt Cagle

SVG Programming: The Graphical Web, authored via best XML specialist Kurt Cagle, is an entire advisor to making, utilizing, and getting access to the robust components of Scalable Vector photographs (SVG). Intermingling SVG guide with insightful dialogue of key issues corresponding to coordinate platforms and attributes, differences, animation, and photograph iteration, Cagle offers readers with a finished advisor to creating the main of this wealthy graphical language.

Initially, readers are awarded with an outline of SVG positive aspects and ideas that provides a variety of examples meant to supply a valid creation to language implementations. Following this short advent, the publication delves at once into the guts of SVG improvement, masking quintessential SVG attributes corresponding to adjustments, shapes, textual content manipulation, and the incorporation of pictures, gradients, styles, and mask. The later chapters are dedicated to subject matters that display the genuine strength of this XML-based know-how, providing worthy perception into animation, interactivity and DOM, filters, and automatic photo new release.

SVG Programming: The Graphical Web deals execs what they should recognize to entry the subsequent evolutionary step in net graphical presentation: to create swifter, extra effective, and extra usable internet purposes on a degree heretofore most unlikely.

This language, called HyTime, started out with noble goals-to build a cohesive mechanism for linking both across a network and over time-but for the most part failed to produce more than a specification for describing music in SGML terms (an effort that has been recast in XML, by the way). However, in the process, it spawned a couple of interesting child technologies. Specifically, a superb programmer named James Clark (who also appears later in the section) created a scripting language called Document Style Semantics and Specification Language (DSSSL) that you can use to perform more complex transformations on SGML-like documents.

If this is the first SVG file you have ever viewed, a dialog box will first appear containing the licensing agreement for the viewer. Accept it (the viewer will not work if you do not-though by all means read the fine print), and you will see an SVG image that looks like Figure 2-1.

This chapter in particular is not meant for deep insight into the creative process or programming models-instead, it is a set of simple recipes you can use to create more sophisticated applications. Whenever possible, I also point you to the primary area that each example most heavily uses. Like any real meaningful languages, even the simplest of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) code requires the use of integrated concepts. Try playing with the examples, seeing if you can come up with the solutions to the problems posed at the end of each exercise (answers are available on my Web site at www.
