Description (last modified by )
An interactive vector graphics editor accessible from the Sage notebook or the command-line may have a variety of uses:
- Drawing diagrams.
- Annotating images. See matplotlib's SVG backend.
- Manipulating graphs and knots.
- Animating objects. See SMIL.
- Creating a free-form 2D workspace.
Candidates:
- jsvectoreditor - Raphael-based editor renders both SVG (non-IE) and VML (IE).
- SVG-edit - Inkscape-lite. See this discussion and this one on matplotlib's SVG.
See sage-devel for some discussion.

Some time has passed and nothing happened. Maybe we can now close this as out of topic ?

Why?!

What do you mean ? Do you agree or disagree with me ?
If somebody wants to edit an SVG file, she can use any existing SVG editor. I do not see why sage should provide such an editor. Do we aim to replace every single software around ? Has this anything to do with mathematics ?

"Manipulating graphs and knots" is mostly being something that we want in Sage... isn't it?

At least I would like to have a digraph editor, just like we now have for undirected graphs. Maybe an option to it?

It seems there are at least some valid use cases, e.g. for graphical notebook widgets for objects in Sage (something which is actively being explored).
I don't know that there's necessarily a case within that for editing arbitrary SVG graphics, though I don't think there'd much case to be made for this outside the context of a notebook widget (anything beyond that is maybe too complicated...)

Hi Alex - Feel free to take this in any direction you think is worthwhile!
