Interested? Here is how to install it.



I assume you have a working apache server.

1) Download the latest SVG-Edit zip file in your /var/www

As of today, the latest one is the 2.7.1 (From April 2014)

cd /var/www

2) Extract the archive and rename the folder (Easier to access)

mv svg-edit.2.7.1 svg-edit

3) Point your browser to http://YourIP/svg-edit/svg-editor.html

If you want to have a more user-friendly URL, you can directly create a dedicated virtualhost pointing to the domain/sub-domain of your choice.
