This is a proposed feature I've discussed with some contributors on Common. Check out this category:
All the images are nearly identical except for the number printed on them. If converted to SVGs,
the only difference from one image to another would be the content of a single text tag (assuming
the appropriate font is embedded if necessary). There are other images where only a single colour
would change, or the position of a small red dot, or some other very minor element. These could all
be supported by a scheme which allows users to supply parameters to SVGs using much the same syntax
they use to supply them to templates. Symbols in the SVG file would be macro-expanded just prior to
rendering. The cached version used would have to depend on the specific parameters.
Here are some more examples where this feature would be very useful:
If you don't have time to do this, please at least advise roughly what might be involved. Thanks.
Not strictly a duplicate, but I'm merging this with general SVG editing anyway
on Rob's orders.
