What this extension does[edit | edit source]

This extension acts as a proxy between a remote file repository and local JavaScript. It allows you to access SVG files from a remote repository at a local URL, circumventing cross-domain restrictions.

Usage and restrictions[edit | edit source]

To access a remote SVG file locally, request api.php?action=svgproxy&file=File:Example.svg. Only files with the .svg extension and the image/svg+xml MIME type can be proxied.

Errors[edit | edit source]

When the SVG proxy fails, it will return an XML-formatted error result and an HTTP status code indicative of the error.
