Building Web Applications with SVG

Create rich interactivity with Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)

Dive into SVG—and build striking, interactive visuals for your web applications. Led by three SVG experts, you’ll learn step-by-step how to use SVG techniques for animation, overlays, and dynamic charts and graphs. Then you’ll put it all together by building two graphic-rich applications. Get started creating dynamic visual content using web technologies you’re familiar with—such as JavaScript, CSS, DOM, and AJAX.

Discover how to:

  • Build client-side graphics with little impact on your web server
  • Create simple user interfaces for mobile and desktop web browsers
  • Work with complex shapes and design reusable patterns
  • Position, scale, and rotate text elements using SVG transforms
  • Create animations using the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL)
  • Build more powerful animations by manipulating SVG with JavaScript
  • Apply filters to sharpen, blur, warp, reconfigure colors, and more
  • Make use of programming libraries such as Pergola, D3, and Polymaps
