#StackBounty: #luatex #svg svg output and LuaTeX

Bounty: 200

Trying to find some ways to automate generation of svg output for TeX math formulas, I thought about two possibilities with luatex.

  1. Use lua inside a callback to parse the node tree and output svg (someone had the very idea some time ago).

  2. Use luatex itself to generate svg instead of pdf. As far as I can see, cairo library is included in luatex source code and cairo can output svg.

My questions are:

  1. What is the current status of svg output support with luatex (the program itself or “third parties” projects).
  2. Could I use mplib‘s metapost svg output for that matter? EDIT It seems that mplib does not support svg anymore.
