A low-key SVG viewer for the Mac OS X platform that lets you open SVG images with an external editor, export them in several formats and more
The application’s user interface features just the area that displays the SVG image and the toolbar at the top for accessing a few buttons. Like any other image viewer, Gapplin provides zoom in / out buttons, but also enables you to switch between a light and a dark mode.
Furthermore, the app displays the current zoom level, width, height and the physical size of the SVG image in pixels, too. As mentioned before, Gapplin does come with an editing function, but does not allow you to edit the SVG file within itself. In other words, the Edit button opens the image in your favorite text editor.
Another handy feature is the ability to export the SVG image in the PNG, PDF or TIFF formats. It is also possible to select the preferred scale before exporting the image. What’s more, the default export format can be selected from the Preferences window.
Al in all, Gapplin works as advertised and delivers a very simple workflow. The app is great for opening and viewing SVG files. Although it does not support editing SVG files, it enables you to quickly open them in your custom text editor with only a click.
