Install Boxy SVG on Raspberry Pi

Boxy SVG

Quick and streamlined vector graphics creator.
Boxy SVG is both simple but powerful, capable of whipping up a quick logo design in minutes or building the most sophisticated digital artwork. Unlike Inkscape or other Linux SVG editors, Boxy SVG uses Chromium's rendering engine for the SVG - the most complete and stable way for making your vector image appear as intended. It is easy to export to PNG, PDF, or numerous other image formats.

All Pi-Apps logos and Botspot branding is made using Boxy SVG, a free tool with an audience of millions.

Raspberry Pi OS has 32-bit and 64-bit variants, both of which will run on most Raspberry Pi computers, including the Pi 3, Pi 4, and Pi5.
