SVG to base64

Convert SVG markup to Base64. Handy to convert SVGs to CSS.

SVG Preview


SVG to base64 uses regex to encode the provided SVG input.

const encodeSvg = (data: string) => {
  const symbols1 = /[\r\n%#()<>?\[\\\]^`{|}]/g

  data = data.replace(/'/g, '"')
  data = data.replace(/>\s{1,}</g, '><')
  data = data.replace(/\s{2,}/g, ' ')

  return data.replace(symbols, encodeURIComponent)

The SVG input is purified at runtime using DOMPurify before being injected into the DOM as a live preview.
