normalize-svg-path

Convert all segments in a path to curves. Usefull if you intend to animate one shape to another. By defining all segments with curves instead of a mix of lines, arcs, and curves tweening becomes much simpler. It could also help you rewrite your SVG code according to the principles of narcissistic design.

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import normalizeSvgPath from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/normalize-svg-path';
