Documentation

Element to Path

Sometimes is useful to have an svg done with paths instead of elements
such as rect, circle, ellipse, line, polyline or polygon.
Like when you apply Compound Path in Adobe Illustrator.

Install

yarn add element-to-path

Usage

const toPath = require('element-to-path')

const circle = {
  type: 'element',
  name: 'circle',
  attributes: {
    cx: 10,
    cy: 10,
    r: 5,
  },
}

const path = toPath(circle)
// 'M15 10 A5 5 0 0 1 10 15 A5 5 0 0 1 5 10 A5 5 0 0 1 15 10 z'
