A new project from David Deraedt called SVG NOW that is an alternative SVG exporter for Adobe Illustrator. This is great news because the code that comes out of Illustrator isn’t as optimized as it could be.
The exporter uses SVGO, so you’ll presumably get (it is in beta and still under development) all of the goodness that is SVGO right inside of Illustrator. Including the SVGO plugins that are available and enabled by default.
From the README file:
It is built on top of Illustrator’s SVG exporter, controls some of its parameters and default values, and runs a customized version of SVGO (node module) with an HTML GUI built on top of it to control its plugins.
