What is Svija?

Svija is a set of tools you can use to construct your website entirely in Adobe Illustrator.

Our goal is to make HTML-based sites feel:

  • boring
  • small
  • unfinished

Scripts for Illustrator

  • share common symbols, paragraph styles and character styles between documents
  • easily share common layers between different Illustrator documents
  • export Illustrator documents automatically to update your website

Django Program to Serve Your Site

  • you keep a single folder synchronized between your hard drive and the server
  • Svija automatically updates your site when you modify the Illustrator file
  • easily change titles, activate pages and change search engine information online

Responsive Design

  • high-resolution (retina on desktop) display in landscape format
  • lower-resolution (retina on telephone) display in portrait format

  • English pages will be at /en/pagename, French pages at /fr/pagename
