Just a few ideas on where this project might go in the future...

  • Path Preview - For edited paths a WYSIWYG representation of the path before and after processing.
  • Node Reduction - This would be way more work, and possibly quite hardcore, but a great feature if combined with the above.

Issues in implementing the above...

  • Path Preview - How would this work if it's a whole XAML document, and perhaps one which is dependent on other files? One path at a time seems best for this, but not the most efficient for a user with 500 paths in one document.
  • Node Reduction - Question of free time, motivation and the benefit of doing it - this is already supported in Illustrator itself.

Previous ideas which have progress...

  • SVG Path Compression - This was easier than I anticipated, and has been released in v7835. Testing on some stock SVG files gave an impressive average of 37% compression for the whole document.
