All SVG week

[ #3184 ]

Interestingly enough, only an hour or so after submitting my proposal about server-side SVG, I see that has a week about SVG and SVG alone!

The first article is about converting XML data to a visual representation of it, something which I've been doing over and over. The author doesn't explore even a tenth of the possibilities (especially having several graphical views of the same data), but then that would be hard :) Eisenberg's article is less interesting as it's about creating a Java servlet (his book, SVG Essentials, is full of Perl code though). Antoine's column is, as usual, excellent (and you haven't seen the full drag code that does a lot more!).

This is very cool, kudos to them for such a week. World domination approaches, SWF must die.

  • World domination approaches, SWF must die.

    In my LWP/HTML talk last year at The Perl Conference, I said that "all-SWF sites are a worst-case scenario for the Web". I really hope it never comes to pass. SWF is just binary dog food.

    Random question: Are SVG files larger than comparable-content SWF files?

    • Re:SVG/Flash (Score:3, Informative)

      SVG enforces that viewers must support gz. Thanks to that, the average SVG file is circa the same size or up to 30% smaller than the equivalent SWF file. The latter more often than not.
