SvgBuild NuGet Appveyor Build Travis Build

This is a .NET based tool set to save SVG to raster images. Includes a terminal-based program and a MSBuild task. It is compatible with .NET Framework 4.6.1 and Mono.


This program uses MSBuild (included in Visual Studio distribution on Windows or Mono on other operation systems). To build the program, run the following script:

$ nuget restore
$ msbuild /p:Configuration=Release SvgBuild.sln

It will create the SvgBuild.Console/bin/Release/SvgBuild.Console.exe binary file.


SvgBuild basically takes two required parameters: input and output path. Input path should lead to a valid SVG file, output path should lead to a valid place to save the resulting image. Output image format will be determined by the output file extension. The supported file extensions are:

  • .bmp
  • .gif
  • .ico
  • .jpeg, .jpg
  • .png
  • .tiff

The image will be rescaled to the new size, if specified. Otherwise, the size of the original document will be preserved.

From Terminal

On Windows:

$ SvgBuild.Console <path to the input file> <path to the output file> [<width>x<height>]

On other operating systems:

$ mono SvgBuild.Console.exe <path to the input file> <path to the output file> [<width>x<height>]

From MSBuild

Install SvgBuild.MsBuild package into your project. Your NuGet client should automatically generate the following in your project file:

<Import Project="..\packages\SvgBuild.MsBuild.1.0.0\build\SvgBuild.MsBuild.props"
        Condition="Exists('..\packages\SvgBuild.MsBuild.1.0.0\build\SvgBuild.MsBuild.props')" />

After that, you're able to run SVG processing tasks e.g. in the AfterBuild target:

<Target Name="SvgBuildTasks" AfterTargets="AfterBuild">
  <SvgBuildTask InputPath="$(ProjectDir)..\SvgBuild.Tests\Resources\Image.svg"
                Height="60" /> 


On Windows:

$ packages\xunit.runner.console.2.3.1\tools\net452\xunit.console.exe SvgBuild.Tests\bin\Release\SvgBuild.Tests.dll

On other operating systems:

$ mono packages/xunit.runner.console.2.3.1/tools/net452/xunit.console.exe SvgBuild.Tests/bin/Release/SvgBuild.Tests.dll


To pack the project before uploading it to NuGet, use the following commands:

$ nuget restore
$ msbuild /p:Configuration=Release SvgBuild.sln
$ nuget pack SvgBuild.MsBuild/SvgBuild.MsBuild.csproj -Tool -Prop Platform=AnyCPU -Prop Configuration=Release
