SVG

New in version 1.9.0.

Warning

This is highly experimental and subject to change. Don’t use it in production.

Load an SVG as a graphics instruction:

from kivy.graphics.svg import Svg
with widget.canvas:
    svg = Svg("image.svg")

There is no widget that can display Svg directly, you have to make your own for now. Check the examples/svg for more informations.
