ComboStrap - Svg Optimization


Svg Optimization is the reduction of the svg file size by deleting unneeded information without losing any quality.


We are following a subset of the SvgO optimization rules.

The implemented rules are:

  • Remove comments
  • Remove metadata
  • clean ID's
  • Remove empty elements
  • Remove editors and empty namespace
  • Remove title
  • Remove desc
  • Remove Style element and class attributes (You may disable it with the preserve attribute)
  • Remove Script element (no script injection)
  • Remove Attribute with default value (for instance version="1.1" or preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet"
  • Remove width and height if they have the same value than the viewBox
  • Remove XML header such as
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  • Remove doctype such as:
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "">

You can disable and/or tune the optimizations with the help of the svg optimization configurations.
