class svgwrite.container.SVG(insert=None, size=None, **extra)

An SVG document fragment consists of any number of SVG elements contained within an svg element.

An SVG document fragment can range from an empty fragment (i.e., no content inside of the svg element), to a very simple SVG document fragment containing a single SVG graphics element such as a rect, to a complex, deeply nested collection of container elements and graphics elements.
