CSS3 Gradient → SVG Image Converter

SVG has its own gradient definitions in the <defs> section of an SVG, so you need to convert the CSS gradient to SVG language.

Preliminary: there is no support yet for user defined SVG definitions

Step 1: Convert

This gradient converter does all the work for you.

Only lineair gradients are supported for conversion

No worries: the resulting definition is the same for linear and radial gradients: its just the type of gradient that differs

This example uses the light color temperature gradient definition from Home Assistant. I copied that one using the Chrome Inspector 😄

Step 2: Add to SAK template

We need the part between the <defs></defs>, ie de definition of the gradient itself and put this in the user-svg-definitions.yaml file. Make sure to give it a logical name (the "id" part) for use as the fill: url(#gradient-id) property.

Convert all single quotes to double quotes!

The linear gradient result we need would be:

  - descr linair-gradient
    content: |
      <linearGradient id="linair-gradient" x1="1" x2="0">
        <stop stop-color="#ffa000"/>
        <stop offset=".5" stop-color="#fff"/>
        <stop offset="1" stop-color="#a6d1ff"/>
      </linearGradient>

And the radial gradient result we need would be:

  - descr radial-gradient
    content: |
      <radialGradient id="radial-gradient" x1="1" x2="0">
        <stop stop-color="#ffa000"/>
        <stop offset=".5" stop-color="#fff"/>
        <stop offset="1" stop-color="#a6d1ff"/>
      </radialGradient>
