This Broccoli plugin renders SVG files to PNG using node-rsvg.


First, get librsvg:

  • OS X: brew install librsvg
  • FreeBSD: pkg install graphics/librsvg2
  • Ubuntu/Debian: sudo apt-get install librsvg2-dev
  • Fedora/CentOS/OpenSUSE: sudo yum install librsvg2-devel

Second, install as any other broccoli plugin:

npm install --save-dev broccoli-rsvg


var renderSvg = require('broccoli-rsvg')

var outputTree = renderSvg(inputNodes, fileOptions)
  • inputNodes: A list of nodes (trees) that contain the SVG files you want to render.
  • fileOptions: A hash of rsvg options and alternative versions for each file; see the following example.


var Rsvg = require('broccoli-rsvg')

var png = new Rsvg(['svg'], {
  'logo.svg': {
    width: 600,
    height: 500, // optional override, values from the svg file itself are used by default
    versions: [
      { // Retina version example
        path: 'logo@2x.png',
        width: 1200,
        height: 1000
      { // Transformed version example
        transformer: function(svg) {
          return svg.replace('#000000', '#ffffff') // You can use elementtree or xmldom here...
        path: 'logo-black.png',
        versions: [
          { // Nested example: transformed + retina
            path: 'logo-black@2x.png',
            width: 1200,
            height: 1000

return [svg, png]

Note: avoid passing broccoli-svgo output to rsvg, it might get screwed up.
