PySoy: Debug SVG Texture
completed by: Liam Edwards-Playne
mentors: Amaury Medeiros, Arc Riley, Tony Young, David Czech, Mayank Singh
Very recently code to render a SVG image was added to
soy.textures.Texture, however, this does not work and instead
crashes the engine.
Many examples can be found on the web for using
load and render a SVG file to a Cairo surface. The segfault happens while the
vector graphic is being rendered, indicating the problem could be in how we
create the Cairo surface or context.
Fix the bug, write a small example which demonstrates loading a SVG file, and enjoy the glory of being the developer to add this important feature to our engine!
