Using .svg files

I want to take advantage of the phenomenal vector support Gideros has. The tool I'm using, Sketch 3, outputs to the format below. Does anyone know if this is a standardised xml format for .svg?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<svg width="106px" height="106px" viewBox="0 0 106 106" version="1.1" xmlns="<a href="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg&quot" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.w3.org/2000/svg&quot</a>; xmlns:xlink="<a href="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"&gt" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"&gt</a>;
    <!-- Generator: Sketch 47 (45396) - <a href="http://www.bohemiancoding.com/sketch" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.bohemiancoding.com/sketch</a> -->
    <desc>Created with Sketch.</desc>
    <g id="Page-1" stroke="none" stroke-width="1" fill="none" fill-rule="evenodd">
        <circle id="Oval" stroke="#979797" stroke-width="5" fill="#D8D8D8" cx="53" cy="53" r="50"></circle>
I'm ultimately looking to abstract this to a function like Vector.new(filename), so I can use .svg files like I use .png files with Bitmap.new(Texture.new(filename)) now.

    I would say not...
    InkScape will not load it
    Internet Exploder just shows a blank window
    Firefox says this...
    XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
    Location: file:///C:/Users/Cliff/test.svg
    Line Number 2, Column 124:
    Chrome says...
    This page contains the following errors:
    error on line 2 at column 124: xmlns: 'http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink=' is not a valid URI
    Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error
    I would say look for options inside your program to export a valid SVG file, or find a new program :bz

    Yes, it is, but gideros itself only handles the 'path' part of svg. Look at the banana exemple in reference manual about Path2D. Applied to your exemple this be become:
    p:setSvgPath("M0,0 L493,0 L493,493 L0,493 L0,0 Z M246.5,376 C318.020875,376 376,318.020875 376,246.5 C376,174.979125 318.020875,117 246.5,117 C174.979125,117 117,174.979125 117,246.5 C117,318.020875 174.979125,376 246.5,376 Z") --Set the path from a SVG path description
    p:setLineThickness(1) -- Outline width (stroke-width)
    p:setFillColor(0x000000,0.0) --Fill color (transparent=no fill)
    p:setLineColor(0x000000) --Line color (nothing specified but let it be black)
  • @hgy29 Okay, then I'll go ahead and parse this XML!

    @antix, could you post an example of what Inkscape outputs?

    @totebo, here is a circle exported from InkScape...
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
    That was exported as a plain SVG file
  • @antix, that's similar, maybe the same? It's missing quite a bit of the XML, probably because of the forum. Maybe attach as text?

    @totebo, yes forum formatting grr. I've attached a zip with it in since the forum also forbids svg attachments :D

  • They look exactly the same! I think we should be good getting this into Gideros.
