PyCairo – How to get SVG file version.
In this article, we will see how we can get SVG file version in pycairo using Python.
Pycairo is a Python module providing bindings for the cairo graphics library. This library is used for creating SVG i.e vector files in python. The easiest and quickest way to open an SVG file to view it (read only) is with a modern web browser like Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Internet Explorer—nearly all of them should provide some sort of rendering support for the SVG format.
The SVG specification was updated to version 1.1 in 2011. There are two ‘Mobile SVG Profiles,’ SVG Tiny and SVG Basic, meant for mobile devices with reduced computational and display capabilities.
