If you’re using the Python turtle module to teach students, or you just like
using the turtle module yourself, this library can save the images from a turtle
script as SVG files. Experiment with your turtle code using the regular turtle
or the Live Coding in Python plugin for PyCharm, then pass an
the same code, and save it as an SVG file. If you want to produce other file
formats, use svglib to convert the SVG to PDF, PNG, GIF, JPG, TIFF, and PCT,
Install it with
pip install svg_turtle. If you haven’t installed Python
packages before, read Brett Cannon’s quick-and-dirty guide.
Once it’s installed, create an
SvgTurtle, telling it how big to make the SVG
file. Then give it some turtle commands, and save the file.
from svg_turtle import SvgTurtle t = SvgTurtle(500, 500) t.forward(200) t.dot(10) t.save_as('example.svg')
