Greeting Dr Stephen and All :
From my understanding around the project :
1- the SVG is
used to draw signs as for example (fig2)
This is correct. We are using SVG primarily until the
TrueType Font is perfected.
2- I should do the FSW for each
sign and also define its word in arabic as for
example (fig 1) where the user when enter
the FSW or the word in arabic , the sign is
The FSW is the mathematical name of the sign. The SVG
image is created from the FSW.
3- But here i do not
understand how to link among the SVG file
(fig2) and the dictionary file (fig 1) .
thanks in advance
The SVG file is created from the FSW. The open source
project the "SignWriting Icon Server" is able to
create the SVG from the FSW.
I just published the first release candidate for the
SignWriting Icon Server. You can grab the source from
Github and install your own, or you can use one of the
several existing SignWriting Icon Servers available
online. I would suggest the Wikimedia Labs based
Github source: https://github.com/Slevinski/swis
Wikimedai Labs server: http://swis.wmflabs.org
SignBank Server: http://signbank.org/swis
Specifically, the "glyphogram.php" script is used to
create the SVG.
You can call this script directly or learn to use the
SignWriting Thin Viewer for website in general.
