I have a Beamer presentation. I've always converted it to PDF with:

pdflatex -interaction=nonstopmode -halt-on-error slides.tex

How can I export the first slide of a Beamer presentation to SVG?



latex mydoc.tex


dvisvgm --font-format=woff mydoc.dvi

By default, since SVG is a one-page graphics format, dvisvgm converts only the first page, as requested by the OP, of the input DVI.

To process all pages of the DVI, which generates one numbered SVG per input page, run

dvisvgm -p1,- --font-format=woff mydoc.dvi

Usable graphics formats for embedding are EPS, PNG, JPEG, SVG. Only EPS gets emedded as inline SVG thanks to the Ghostscript library used by dvisvgm. (Ghostscript must be installed on the system.) Other graphics formats remain external and must be shipped with the main document SVG output.

More info available through dvisvgm man page:

man dvisvgm

with a TeXLive installation on Linux.
