Python-based SVG editor

This is an utility package that helps to edit and concatenate SVG files. It is especially directed at scientists preparing final figures for submission to journal. So far it supports arbitrary placement and scaling of svg figures and adding markers, such as labels.

See the blog post <http://neuroscience.telenczuk.pl/?p=331>_ for a short tutorial.

The full documentation is available here <https://svgutils.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html>_.

Install

From PyPI


You can install `svgutils` from Python Package Index (PyPI) using the `pip3` utility::

   pip3 install svgutils --user

Note that the `pip3` will attempt to install `lxml` library if it is not already installed.
For the installation to be sucessful, you need development libraries of `libxml2` and `libxslt1`.
On Ubuntu and other Debian-derived Linux distributions you can install them via::

   sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt-dev
   
From Conda

Installing svgutils from the conda-forge channel can be achieved by adding conda-forge to your channels with::

conda config --add channels conda-forge

You can install svgutils from conda-forge channel::

conda install svgutils

If you don't want to add the channel to your configuration, you can specify it at the time of installation::

conda install svgutils -c conda-forge

From sources


To install system-wide (needs administrator privilages)::

   python3 setup.py install

To install locally (do not forget to add
``$HOME/python/lib/python3.6/site-packages/`` to your Python path)::

   python3 setup.py install --user
