A MODX extra for parsing SVG files inline. The file is cleaned first, to make sure there's no malicious javascripts or external links inside.Uses the following sanitizer: https://github.com/darylldoyle/svg-sanitizer/

For additional information and bug reports, see Github.

Why?Because SVGs are a perfect way for delivering sharp and scalable graphics on your site. And serving them inline makes them even more versatile! You can change the colors of individual paths, let the SVG adapt to its parent's fill color or animate the contents with JS.An added bonus for including SVGs with the svgSanitize snippet, is that you can actually use MODX syntax inside your SVGs. Create multilanguage SVGs by using lexicon strings as text, or use them in getResources templates with unique pagetitles or TV data... Endless possibilities.Have fun!
