WTF is an SVG?
PNG assets are out and vector graphics are in. Your designers are delivering SVG files to you, and the lack of various esoterically named folders is refreshing. However, they don’t look the way the designer intended when you import them in Android Studio. In this talk, I’ll cover what these SVGs are, how to convert one to a VectorDrawable effectively, how they can be animated, and some of the pitfalls of unsupported SVG features.
