Use Google's svg.js to support most browsers

Registered by spool on 2009-09-11

Google has a new javascript library that leverages various things (including flash, ironically) to implement most of svg for non-standards compliant browsers. If this were embedded in jessyink, we could theoretically use our presentations in 95% of browsers, and we could use native svg stuff that hasn't yet been supported even in Firefox/safari (such as animations...).

Sprints

Whiteboard

I quickly played with it and got it to display an SVG image with JessyInk installed in IE. However, none of the scripting worked. I suppose we would have to put the scripting outside the actual image to make it work. In FF it worked fine, apart from the fact that the image was not scaled to the size of the window.

Definitely a very interesting library. Let's see how it continues.
