svg support
« on: November 22, 2010, 02:55:09 pm »

Hi,

I searched the forum, but all I could find was a earlier posting of the question I have (by someone else), that was answered with "update your coppermine".

Well, I've got the newest and wanted to ask, if there is any support for .svg-files or if such a support is planed?

Thanks,
Heinrich

What's that?
A prerecorded response?


The topic mentioned is:
http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,44045.0.html

My Coppermine is:

Both totally worthless information in regards to the question if coppermine is capable to handle "Scalable Vector Graphics" (aka .svg files) or if svg-support is planned.

No. I typed every character manually ::)


What exactly means 'support' for you? You can of course upload svg files (at least as 'document', as GD doesn't support svg). I don't know if ImageMagick can handle svg files. So the answer is probably, that Coppermine already supports svg and no further support is planned. If Coppermine doesn't work as you want, a simple mod or plugin could solve your problem.

Was such a mod done already?


I also wanted to see, if Firefox would try to display the svg-file, if I uploaded it as document, but even though I adjusted the File-Settings to allow the extension, coppermine failed to upload, returning an error, stating the filetype was not supported.

Since many of the graphics, for example in wikipedia, are svg and support for this W3C-standard will even reach IE9, coppermine should possibly also include some kind of handling of this file type. And, if GD does not handle the files, well, it would not matter, since the browsers would render Thumbnails just great.
Thumbnails wouln't bring any file size benefit with the small .svg-files anyway.

You can add new filetypes easily with that plugin.

Sure, I can use this tool to create a new file entry in the table, but only as document, not as image, although the MIME is given as image/svg+xml.

So, there will be no preview of any kind, just coppermine's icon for "Other Documents".

So, what I seem to need it a way, to let coppermine handle the picture without using GD or ImageMagick, but simply let the browser render the thumbnail and intermediate size pictures.
The file type is inherently scalable after all.

The intermediate-sized version can be displayed with the plugin hook html_document. Can you please attach an svg file that I can use for testing? Thanks.

Nope. This Board doesn't allow the file type, either.

Here is a lint to a svg however:

Here is a first draft of the plugin that enables svg support. It currently displays the svg as thumbnail and intermedia-sized picture. I have some trouble to add the link to the thumbnail, so it's currently only possible to follow the link if you click next to the svg thumbnail.

I added the pugin, but I'm not sure, how to setup correctly.

What options did you use in the file type table?
Did you add svg as a document or picture file in the Settings ?

All you have to do is installing the plugin. It automatically adds/updates the entry in the file types table:
Code: [Select]
    if (!mysql_result(cpg_db_query("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM {$CONFIG['TABLE_FILETYPES']} WHERE extension = 'svg'"), 0)) {
        cpg_db_query("INSERT INTO {$CONFIG['TABLE_FILETYPES']} (extension, mime, content, player) VALUES ('svg', 'image/svg+xml', 'document', '')");
    } else {
        cpg_db_query("UPDATE {$CONFIG['TABLE_FILETYPES']} SET mime = 'image/svg+xml', content = 'document', player = '' WHERE extension = 'svg'");
    }
    if (strpos($CONFIG['allowed_doc_types'], 'svg') === FALSE) {
        cpg_db_query("UPDATE {$CONFIG['TABLE_CONFIG']} SET value = CONCAT(value, '/svg') WHERE name = 'allowed_doc_types'");
    }

Ah, okay, didn't realise that, since I had that added manually before.

There is no thumbnail-preview in the film strip.
Besides that, and the aforementioned problem with the linking, it works fine.

Additionally, I guess the slide-show won't work properly (either it will be skipped, or some default icon will be used).

Would there be any way to make the picture appear in the file approval view, as well as in the film bar.

That would be a nice final addition to this otherwise perfect working plugin.

Film strip support added in svn revision 8148. Feel free to extend the plugin.
