In this discussion TiddlyWiki 5 core icon development - #16 by duarte.framos the use of Inscape was raised.
Inkscape is a free and open-source vector graphics editor; it can be used to create or edit vector graphics such as illustrations, diagrams, line arts, charts, logos and complex paintings. Inkscape’s primary vector graphics format is Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), however many other formats can be imported and exported
There are specific details we need to understand to integrate SVGs you can edit or make in incscape and use in tiddlywiki. So I thought what if we study and share this in the community and crowdsource learning all about it.
- Share your experience and experiments here
- Lets discuss it until we overcome the issues and ultimately document it for all.
The following is a list of issues we need to address at a high level, if you identify more feel free to add to this list.
- Creating SVG then using them in tiddlywiki
- As illustrations
- As buttons
- Importing a TiddlyWikli icon or one sourced at TW Icons v1.10 — A large collection of icons for TiddlyWiki into inscape
- Them modify or enhance
- Then using them in tiddlywiki as above
- Creating SVGs that once in tiddlywiki then can respond to content or parameters in TiddlyWiki.
- Creating SVG favicons and when to use raster formats like png
- Acknowledgements and licencing
- Changing color programmatically
- On Hover in toolbars
