    Hi from Spain!.
    I have just found this great project searching for a way to include a SVG icon library in my educational project.
    I'm using FabricJS to insert SVG graphics into HTML5 canvas, so I need some way to retrieve the actual SVG code of each icon.
    Is it possible with SimpleSVG?
    Thank you very much.

    Yes. There are several ways to do that.

    1. Use SVG directly without SimpleSVG. Search icons here: https://simplesvg.com/icon-sets/
    Click any icon, it will show you code for icon. Click "SVG" tab and you'll have SVG code.

    2. Using SimpleSVG to preload icons, then retrieving SVG data. Its a bit more complex because preloading is asynchronous. See this tutorial: https://simplesvg.com/docs/getting-svg-data/

    Neither of those. I recommend Figma and Sketch.
