# Installation¶

SVG++ requires Boost library (was tested with Boost >= 1.55). Only header-only libraries from Boost are used, no build required.

SVG++ consists of header files only and does not require any libraries to link against. Including svgpp/svgpp.hpp will be sufficient for most projects.

Library was tested with this compilers:

• Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015
• GCC 4.8 (in C++11 mode it requires Boost >= 1.56)
• Clang 3.2

Note

Compilation of module that uses a lot of SVG++ features may require large amount of RAM. Please be aware of this when compiling on VMs.
