SVG JavaScript Libraries for Developers

SVG, or Scalable Vector Graphics, is an open standard, XML-based format developed by the W3C for representing vector graphics. SVG is an excellent way to create interactive, resolution-independent vector graphics that will look great on any size screen.

Therefore in this article we have collected some of the Best SVG JavaScript Libraries for developers that will help you to create beautiful graphics and animated contents for their web applications. if you are aware of any JS SVG API we have not mentioned please, please let us know by posting a comment below.

1. Walkway.js

walkway-js
Walkway.js is an easy way to animate SVG images consisting of line and path elements. Simply create a new Walkway instance with a supplied options object.

Currently, Walkway.js only works on path and line elements.

2. Progressbar.js

ProgressBar.js is lightweight, MIT licensed and supports all major browsers including IE9+. You can change the color of progress bar smoothly with animation. You could also animate any property like stroke width, fill opacity, fill color etc.

3. Chartlist.js

chartist
Chartist.js is a simple responsive charting library built with SVG. Chartist’s goal is to provide a simple, lightweight and non-intrusive library to responsive craft charts on your website. It’s important to understand that one of the main intentions of Chartist.js is to rely on standards rather than providing a own solution to the problem which is is already solved by the standard.
Chartist works with inline-SVG and therefore leverages the power of the DOM to provide parts of its functionality. This also means that Chartist is not providing it’s own event handling, labels, behaviors and anything else that can just be done with plain HTML, JavaScript and CSS.

4. Vivus

6. Seen.js

seenjs
Seen.js renders 3D scenes into SVG or HTML5 Canvas. Seen.js contains a simple abstraction on top of the graphics capabilities of SVG and HTML5 Canvas elements. All of the other components of this library are agnostic to the type of context it will be rendered in.

Seen.js contains a looping, event-firing class for animating scenes. The render context contains a method .animate() which will create and return an animator that is set up to invoke the context’s .render() method. To modify the scene on every frame, listen to the ‘beforeRender’ event.
