Request about SVGedit.js[edit]


Thanks for your fork of Rillke's SVGedit.js, it's really an improvement. I would like to see if you would be intrested in adding yet another feature, namely an automatic resizer. With the push of a button the height and width would be increased to about 100.000 pixels. The dimensions can be fetched from The reason for this feature is obviously to increase the nominal size of SVGs that are supersmall. I can't program unfortunately so that's why I'm asking you :).Jonteemil (talk) 05:56, 3 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Jonteemil: Thanks and you're welcome. I'd like to help but am unfamiliar with writing wmflabs tools. Some editors who may have that knowledge are @JoKalliauer: , @Redrose64: and @Slashme: . As far as I know, SVG dimensions are used only when it is
  1. Directly viewed in a browser (not as an Rsvg thumbnail)
  2. Previewed in the commons:commons SVG Checker
  3. Previewed in the user:Rillke/SVGedit.js tool
When used as a thumbnail, the width and/or height can be specified. Is that sufficient for your needs? Cheers, cmɢʟee ⋅τaʟκ 12:36, 4 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, you are correct. You can change the size of an SVG when you use it. I still think the file pages themselves look so bad when you can't see what the SVGs depict. See for example File:GrayCircle.svg, or rather se how you can't see.Jonteemil (talk) 13:37, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Good point, but do you have statistics on roughly how many files are affected, to gauge whether it's worth developing this tool? May I suggest creating a (hidden) category to tag any such files found, and in a few months see how many there are? If it's just a handful, it's likely quicker to do it manually. cmɢʟee ⋅τaʟκ 17:18, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

File:Comparison optical telescope primary mirrors.svg[edit]

Updated JWST and basketball court

The image in your File:Comparison optical telescope primary mirrors.svg is widely circulated and much appreciated these days after the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope.

Here are some minor suggestions from various people -

  1. Update the basketball court markings to reflect the new rectangular key area adopted by FIBA since 2010.
  2. Color the James Webb Space Telescope golden.


@SN2020tlf: Thanks for your note. Great idea to update the basketball court markings. I'll do it this weekend. Re the JWST colour, I've previously assigned space telescopes shades of grey to distinguish them from terrestrial ones. I'll make it black as it's been launched.
Are there any other changes to be done?
Incidentally, if you think it relevant, would you like to nominate it for NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day to accompany File:Nucleosynthesis_periodic_table.svg after I've fixed the above? Thanks, cmɢʟee ⋅τaʟκ 01:03, 15 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
