WikiCarpedia - SVG Support
« on: June 13, 2023, 04:03:00 AM »
I'm creating this thread to not forget this long term issue. Support for SVG images.

Why:
1. All expansion symbols can be stored as SVG as vector images with possibility to resize without any image quality damage (also when enlarged)
2. Not need to generate multiple thumbnails or resized images for different purposes.
3. Decrease data transfer between visitor and server (PNG images are usually larger then SVG images).

What is an issue:
1. MediaWiki (engine used on wica), doesn't support SVG images "natively" and any size of SVG image is stored as separate PNG file
2. Extension for native support of SVG is broken, or at least it is not working on WICA https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:NativeSvgHandler :(

Current status:
SVG Support is turned off
