Scour - Cleaning SVG Files

Registered 2009-04-02 by codedread

Cleans SVG files produced by vector editors such as Inkscape and Adobe Illustrator, aiming to remove unused cruft and reduce file size.

Scour aims to reduce the size of SVG files as much as possible, while retaining the original rendering of the files. It does not do so flawlessly for all files, therefore users are encouraged not to overwrite their original files.

Optimisations performed by Scour on SVG files include: removing empty elements, removing metadata elements, removing unused id= attribute values, removing unrenderable elements, trimming coordinates to a certain number of significant places, and removing vector editor metadata.

Scour is included as an Inkscape extension, and as a Python package on some Linux distributions.
