This app supports rendering SVG using the OVE framework. It is based on Tuoris, a middleware for distributed SVG rendering. An installation of Tuoris is required to use the SVG app. More information on installing Tuoris can be found in the OVE installation guide.

The SVG app depends on an environment variable named TUORIS_HOST, that points to the URL at which the Tuoris instance runs.

Application State

The state of this app has a format similar to:

    "url": ""

Loading the App

An SVG can be loaded using the OVE APIs:


curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data '{"app": {"url": "http://OVE_APP_SVG_HOST:PORT","states": {"load": {"url": ""}}}, "space": "OVE_SPACE", "h": 500, "w": 500, "y": 0, "x": 0}' http://OVE_CORE_HOST:PORT/section


curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" --request POST --data "{\"app\": {\"url\": \"http://OVE_APP_SVG_HOST:PORT\", \"states\": {\"load\": {\"url\": \"\"}}}, \"space\": \"OVE_SPACE\", \"h\": 500, \"w\": 500, \"y\": 0, \"x\": 0}" http://OVE_CORE_HOST:PORT/section

The SVG app has a transparent background. If required, a background colour of choice can be set using the Background Utility provided by OVE.

If the SVG app is used to display static SVGs no further controlling would be required after the SVG has been loaded. The app provides a controller that can used to control interactive SVGs.

Controlling the App

The controller of the app can be loaded by accessing the URL http://OVE_APP_SVG_HOST:PORT/control.html?oveSectionId=SECTION_ID.
