In this short article we would like to show how to convert *.svg file to Data URL encoded with base64 using Bash (under Linux or Git for Windows).

Quick solution:

echo "data:image/svg+xml;base64,$(cat input_image.svg | base64 | tr -d '\r\n')" > output_image.txt

Where: input_image.svg is converted to output_image.txt (Data URL with base64).

Result

Now Data URL written to output_image.txt can be used as embeded resource on web page, eg.

<html>
<body>
  <img src="data:image/svg+xml;base64,PHN2ZyB4bWxucz0iaHR0cDovL3d3dy53My5vcmc ...">
</body>
</html>
