An interactive guide to SVG paths

Understanding SVG Paths is an essential skill for front-end developers. The d attribute in SVG code represents the path data and is made up of a series of commands. Each command consists of a single-letter code followed by numbers that determine how the path should be drawn. Uppercase commands are absolute, relative to the origin point, while lowercase commands are relative to the previous command’s endpoint. By mastering these commands, developers can create complex and impressive animations, like a bendy square. This guide is an interactive deep dive into SVG paths, covering different command types and how to use them to draw icons. Let’s get started and unlock the potential of SVG paths!
