How to use SVG in Bubble.io?

Incorporating SVG images into your Bubble.io app can significantly enhance the visual quality and scalability of your graphics. Here's a simple guide on how to use SVGs in Bubble.io:

Step 1: Prepare your SVG file. Ensure that your SVG file is optimized and that its file size is under 1 Mb to prevent performance issues on local devices. You can use tools like Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape to create and optimize SVG files.

**Step 2: **Log into your Bubble.io dashboard. Enter the editor of the app where you want to include the SVG.

**Step 3: **Add an HTML element to your page. From the Visual Elements menu on the left-hand side, drag and drop the HTML element onto your page where you want the SVG image to appear.

**Step 4: **Size the HTML element accordingly. Adjust the width and height of the HTML element to fit the SVG.

Step 5: Embed the SVG code. Click on the HTML element you just added to open its properties editor. You'll need to paste the XML code of your SVG image into this editor. If your SVG file is saved on your computer, you can open it with a text editor, such as Notepad or Sublime Text, to copy the code.

Step 6: Fine-tune display settings. To maintain responsiveness and ensure proper scaling across different devices, avoid hard-coding width and height values into the SVG XML code unless it's necessary. Instead, you can use CSS within the HTML element to set the SVG to be 100% width and auto height to keep its aspect ratio.

Step 7: Secure your app. While allowing HTML input might enable greater flexibility in design, it is crucial to ensure that the code you're embedding is safe and won't expose your app to security vulnerabilities.

**Step 8: **Preview your page. In the Bubble.io editor, use the Preview function to see how your SVG looks in the app. Check to see if it scales correctly and maintains its resolution at different screen sizes.

Step 9: Make necessary adjustments. If the SVG doesn't display as expected, go back to the HTML element's properties editor and make necessary changes to the code or styling.

Step 10: Save and deploy. Once you're satisfied with how the SVG appears in the preview, save your changes and deploy the updates to your live app.

Remember, SVGs are great for illustrations, icons, and other graphics because they can scale without losing resolution. This capability is particularly valuable for high-density displays and responsive design in Bubble.io apps.
