Documentation

Sphinx SVG to PDF Converter Extension

This extension converts SVG images to PDF in case the builder does not support SVG images natively (e.g. LaTeX).

Internally, either Inkscape, rsvg-convert from libRSVG or CairoSVG as progressively more lightweight alternatives are used to convert images.

Installation

Just install via pip:

$ pip install sphinxcontrib-svg2pdfconverter

You can choose between Inkscape, libRSVG and CairoSVG by adding sphinxcontrib.inkscapeconverter, sphinxcontrib.rsvgconverter or sphinxcontrib.cairosvgconverter to the extensions list in your conf.py.

Make sure to have either inkscape or the rsvg-convert command available in your systems PATH and, if necessary, adapt the inkscape_converter_bin or rsvg_converter_bin config value respectively.

CairoSVG requires additional dependencies to be installed with:

$ pip install sphinxcontrib-svg2pdfconverter[CairoSVG]

CairoSVG and its dependencies may require additional tools during the installation depending on the OS you are using; see the CairoSVG documentation for further details.
