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

dvisvgm Web Site


  • 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.

    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.
