Is there any package that let inserting SVG markups directly in LaTeX and get result image like:

  <polygon points="100,10 40,180 190,60 10,60 160,180" style="fill:lime;stroke:purple;stroke-width:5;fill-rule:nonzero;"/>

    As detailed in [tex.stackexchange.com/questions/2099/… to include SVG diagrams in LaTeX?), the nearest I think you'll get is using TikZ and an appropriate \path, but this will not work for arbirtary SVG.

  • Do you want to include a listing of svg code, or do you wan to "run" the svg code and include the resulting picture?

  • @JLDiaz Second one. I want include result picture. Perhaps a package can map SVG code internally to TikZ. Jul 27 '12 at 8:38

I don't know how to do it in LaTeX, but in ConTeXt you can use the filter module to run a converter, for example inkscape and include the output. Here is an example of this:



  [filtercommand={inkscape                   \space
      --without-gui                          \space
      --export-ignore-filters                \space
      --export-pdf=\externalfilteroutputfile \space
      --file=\externalfilterinputfile        \space


  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" height="88" width="74">
      <polygon points="100,10 40,180 190,60 10,60 160,180" style="fill:lime;   


The output:


Of course, you need to have inkscape installed for the conversion.
