Hello everyone, trying to get my hands dirty with the inkscape codebase

Andrea Bogazzi
Hi Everyone,
I was looking into eps -> svg conversion and inkscape does an almost perfect job if it wasn't that it trash layers information and group information.
I started to dig into the code to figure out if it was something i could look into and try to improve, i found so far this folder that seems to handle the relevant code:


Is there anyone able to give me a quick input to know if that is the correct code to look at, or if not point me to the right code files?

Also does anyone have information of why this feature is currently not supported, if is a matter of use case missing, if just no one built it or if is more about some technical problem that has been already discussed and discarded?

To be honest i remember in the past opening some pdf with inkscapes and having multiple ungrouping operations to do before hitting the single objects, but as of now, if i create an eps with illustrators with group or layers and then i import it in inkscape, i get a flat list of objects.

So maybe i just remember wrong.

I m not by any mean a c++ expert, i have svg and pdf knowledge and some c++ coding, but since i need this feature i would like at least to give it a shot.

Andrea

Hey Andrea! Welcome to the team!
I'm not a c++ coder, so I can't answer your question.
I think it'll be better if you change the title of this email to a one more specific, so you can get the attention to the people that handle the knowlage.
We are a large team and we received a lot of emails daily.
