class svgwrite.container.Group(**extra)

The Group (SVG g) element is a container element for grouping together related graphics elements.

Grouping constructs, when used in conjunction with the desc and title elements, provide information about document structure and semantics. Documents that are rich in structure may be rendered graphically, as speech, or as braille, and thus promote accessibility.

A group of elements, as well as individual objects, can be given a name using the id attribute. Named groups are needed for several purposes such as animation and re-usable objects.
