I have to create an animation on-the-fly. Basically the user fills out a
form telling a piece of equipment what to do in time-sequenced steps.
Before committing the changes I want to show the user what actions they
programmed the machine to perform. I've been planning to generate a GIF
on the fly, but I've started toying with the idea either of using <canvas>
or SVG. <canvas> is currently unsupported on my embedded browser
(konqueror embedded), so that leaves SVG.
How exactly do I use SVG graphics? What can I do and how do I go about it?
Re: SVG primer
It's a shame that <canvas> isn't supported by Konq, given that it was
first introduced by Konq's cousin Safari. I would expect that canvas would
be perfect for your needs. (You may be able to reproduce it using some
SVG is only supported by Konq with the KSVG plugin. Many other browsers
have some level of native SVG support -- Opera supports the entire SVG
Tiny 1.1 spec. Mozilla are going for the larger and more complicated SVG
Full spec, but don't support all of it yet.
Here's an tutorial:
