SVGator: SVG Animation Made Easy

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is the best format for web images. SVG format makes responsive design easy because images do not get pixelated and stay crisp regardless of screen size. Another advantage of SVG is a small file size. It takes less time for images to load which improves a website’s performance.

SVG can be animated with CSS, JavaScript or an SVG <animate> tag. However, SVG animation is meticulous and tedious work. SVGator changes that. SVGator is a web application that allows you to create the animation of simple SVG in an easy manner. You import a static SVG image, use graphical user interface (GUI) to animate it, and export the SVG. Code complexity is handled for you!

To begin, navigate to svgator.com. It’s a good idea to start by watching tutorials to familiarize yourself with the SVGator app functionality. You can find the link for tutorials in the upper right corner:svgator homepage showing where the tutorial button is located
