Getting to Know SVG
So in the last section we designed our icons using Sketch, which is a vector based design tool. What vector based means is that it's not just using pixels to show what's on screen, but it's conveying the information of what is on screen. So instead of saying you know, we got a pixel that's red and a pixel that's white, instead it says okay that's actually a circle, and then that circle can be any size. So instead of saying what the graphic looks like it's saying what the graphic is actually, what is the content of the graphic. And because we're designing now in vector programs like Illustrator and Sketch, it really makes sense that we would be showing the graphics and the icons that we create using a graphics format like SVG that is vector based. SVG stands for scalable vector graphics and instead of having pixels like a png or a jpeg, it's far more flexible. So we're gonna learn about what SVG is, how it's used, what it's capable of, we're even gonna learn how to write and read the ac...
