9780735660120: Building Web Applications with SVG (Developer Reference)

Create rich interactivity with Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)

Dive into SVG—and build striking, interactive visuals for your web applications. Led by three SVG experts, you’ll learn step-by-step how to use SVG techniques for animation, overlays, and dynamic charts and graphs. Then you’ll put it all together by building two graphic-rich applications. Get started creating dynamic visual content using web technologies you’re familiar with—such as JavaScript, CSS, DOM, and AJAX.

Discover how to:

  • Build client-side graphics with little impact on your web server
  • Create simple user interfaces for mobile and desktop web browsers
  • Work with complex shapes and design reusable patterns
  • Position, scale, and rotate text elements using SVG transforms
  • Create animations using the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL)
  • Build more powerful animations by manipulating SVG with JavaScript
  • Apply filters to sharpen, blur, warp, reconfigure colors, and more
  • Make use of programming libraries such as Pergola, D3, and Polymaps

About the Author:

David Dailey was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, receiving his bachelor's degree from the University of New Mexico and his doctorate from the University of Colorado. Having taught mathematics, psychology and computer science at the Universities of Wyoming, Tulsa, and Alaska, he later moved east with appointments at Vassar, Williams, and Bay Path College, before settling in at Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania where he is Professor of Computer Science teaching mainly in areas of web programming. He is married, has four children and enjoys creating art, food, music and games.

Jon Frost is a senior .NET developer who has worked with SVG for more than a decade. The SVG applications he has developed include dynamic and interactive reporting/charting applications. He initiated and collaborated on the book “Learn SVG: The Web Graphics Standard” in 2002. For the last year he has been developing web applications to Azure.

Domenico Strazzullo has been involved in SVG since 2000. His work on the web has often been cited as some of the most elegant, well-crafted and useful. His company Dotuscomus has been doing SVG-related consulting for almost a decade. He is the author of Pergola, a JavaScript library for SVG, and of the open-source project GEMï, a web operating system. Founder and editor in chief of “SVG magazine”, he was also co-founder and managing editor of “Tabula Rasa” in 2004.
