The latest version of SVG++ can be downloaded from SVG++ repository, at, or as a package at

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


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.
