Below you can find more details about the various file formats that SVGator provides:

1. .SVG extension files

The .svg extension files, with a web export option for JavaScript or CSS, are graphics files that contain vector-based graphics suitable for the web.

They offer scalability without loss of quality and can be styled or animated using JavaScript or CSS for web-based applications.

2. .JS extension files for React Native

The .js extension files in React Native are used for iOS or Android export, leveraging JavaScript as the primary language for app development.

3. .DART extension files for Flutter

The .dart extension files are commonly associated with Flutter, Google's UI toolkit used to create natively compiled apps for mobile, web, and desktop from a unified codebase.

Dart, the language used in Flutter, predominantly powers these apps, with multiple .dart files forming the app's architecture, user interface, and functionality.

4. Converting SVG animations to Video formats

Converting SVG animations to Video ensures the following:

  • Wider Compatibility
  • Sharing and Distribution
  • Playback Control (more control over pausing, seeking, and adjusting volume)
  • Offline Usage (videos can be downloaded and viewed offline)
  • Editing and Post-Processing (enables adding effects, overlays, text, or combining multiple elements into a single video file)
  • User Experience Optimization. The video file formats offer broader compatibility, so you can export your files in .mp4, .avi, .mov (with transparency), .webm (with transparency), .mkv

5. Converting SVG animations to Animated Image formats

Animated image formats are useful, and they offer the following benefits:

  • Compatibility (ensures broader compatibility across various browsers)
  • Simplified Usage (directly inserted into presentations)
  • Social Media and Messaging (in social media platforms, email signatures and messaging apps)
  • Reduced File Sizes and more: .gif, animated .png, .webp, .zip (png image sequence)

Web and mobile formats (.svg, .js, and .dart) can be exported as either static or animated.

If you choose to export animated SVG, you can set JavaScript or CSS as the animation type.

When exporting .svg, we usually recommend selecting JavaScript instead of CSS, as JavaScript supports all advanced animators and interactive export options, therefore it will look the same in all major browsers.

But unfortunately, CSS doesn’t support advanced features such as morphing, curved motion path animations, or interactive export options such as starting the animation ‘On click’.

However, you can use this format for simple animations such as CSS loaders.
