I am trying to create a lightning component that will show an SLDS illustration of missing data:

enter image description here

when I create my component with the <svg> tag I cannot save the component markup:

QUESTION:

How do I create an svg tag in the lightning markup?

All the example1, example2 I can find are very old, and point to opening the SLDS static resource or creating icon to the component - this is not what I am looking for.

Also I found this example which is creating a component from existing svg, but I did not find the missing data 'desert' svg that I want

  • Whats the issue with creating a static resource with the svg code for the Desert illustration and then referencing it in the img tag? – Stas Christiansen Oct 31 '18 at 23:40
  • The issue is that it is not a good way to do that, I would expect lightning component support of the svg tag. I do not want to add or update a static resource to every svg file I need – Itai Shmida Nov 1 '18 at 13:38

Unfortunately, Lightning still doesn't support svg tags.

I haven't tried using <img src="/path-to-svg.svg"/> but it should work. Try saving your code as an svg file, uploading it as a static resource, and referencing it that way.

    Thanks, that works for me and I will use it as long as there is no standard supported solution – Itai Shmida Nov 1 '18 at 13:36
