The command line tool dvisvgm converts DVI and EPS files, as created by TeX/LaTeX, to the XML-based SVG format.


  • Converts standard DVI files as well as DVI/XDV files created with pTeX or XeTeX.
  • Also provides an option to convert EPS files to SVG.
  • Computes tight bounding boxes for the generated graphics, but supports common paper formats and arbitrary user-defined sizes as well.
  • Complete font support including virtual fonts, CID-keyed fonts, subfonts, evaluation of font encodings and font maps.
  • Automatically vectorizes fonts that are only available as Metafont sources.
  • Optionally replaces font elements by paths so that applications without SVG font support are enabled to render dvisvgm's output properly.
  • Evaluation of color, emTeX, tpic, hyperref, fontmap, and PostScript specials.
  • Approximates PostScript color gradient fills not directly supported by SVG 1.1.
  • Provides options for applying page transformations, like translation, rotation, scaling, and skewing.
  • dvisvgm has been added to TeX Live and is therefore available for a wide range of operating systems.

User Reviews

  • This software is easy to use and works excellently well. The developer, Martin Gieseking, was extremely helpful in personal communications to me. Without his personal help I wouldn't have been able figure out how to configure my system to properly use dvisvgm. My sincere thanks to Martin, and I heartily recommend dvisvgm to anyone who needs to rapidly convert dvi graphics to svg format.
