Invariants of Inkscape

These are the founding goals for Inkscape that we'll be adhering to in this project.

  • Full SVG (plus XML, CSS2) compliance
  • Core written in C/C++
  • Gtk-based user interface following the standards set out in the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines (HIG)
  • Emphasis on a small core and extensibility. Extensions should be first-class citizens, so we can say "no" to features in the core without guilt.
  • Open, community-oriented development processes
  • Baseline is the Sodipodi Hydra codebase
  • Where a better solution cannot be found, default to the way Illustrator does it.
