Even though SVG is not difficult to learn if you come from an HTML-CSS-y background, working with SVG is not as straightforward as working with HTML, because they are fundamentally different in many aspects.
We tend to work with SVG and expect it to behave similarly to the way HTML does, or maybe expect the tools, properties, functions, etc. to work with SVG just like they do with HTML. But, unfortunately, our expectations are not always met, and we are stuck trying to figure out what went wrong, and why what we expected to work simply didn’t. Why isn’t the element translated as I expected it to? Why are those coordinates wrong? Why aren’t my styles applied? Why isn’t the script working?
In this talk, we’ll go over some of the common pitfalls that you are likely to face when working with SVG. We’ll go over solutions to avoid these pitfalls, and workarounds for some of SVG’s quirks, as well as cover some powerful techniques that can take your SVG skills to the next level.
