"sdf2svg" - PHP Script to Convert SDF to SVG
Provides a tutorial example on how to download and install sdf2svg, an open source PHP script developed by Ronnie Persson, to convert a molecule structure in a SDF file to a SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) file.
If you want to convert molecule structures in SDF format to SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format to be viewed on Web pages directly, you can download and install the "sdf2svg" open source PHP script developed by Ronnie Persson.
1. Download "df2svg_beta_with_samples.zip" from sourceforge.net/projects/sdf2svg under the "beta_with_sample" folder.
2. Unzip all files from "df2svg_beta_with_samples.zip" into a folder called "sdf2svg". You should see the following contents:
herong$ ls -l sdf2svg -rwxr-xr-x 1 herong staff 1141 Apr 6 19:52 index.html -rwxr-xr-x@ 1 herong staff 3416 Apr 6 19:46 outputsvg.php -rwxr-xr-x@ 1 herong staff 2311 Apr 6 19:46 sample.php -rwxr-xr-x@ 1 herong staff 14956 Apr 6 19:46 sample.sdf -rwxr-xr-x@ 1 herong staff 3463 Apr 6 19:46 sample2.php drwxr-xr-x@ 12 herong staff 408 Apr 6 19:46 sdf2svg
3. Move this folder to the Apache Web server. And adjust owership and permission of this folder to be served as PHP scrits.
4. Run the first sample PHP page. You should see a picture of 4 molecules in SVG format converted from a SDF file.
