ArcherValue Driven Graphics

Create reactive graphics for websites, apps, HMI or IoT projects

WHO IS IT FOR?

Data driven, reactive vector graphics made easy

Archer is for everyone who needs to visualize different states of a system or user interface. This can be a machine’s user interface, a custom dashboard visualization, basically anything where the SVG should react to value changes or user input.

WHY ARCHER?

Less code – more efficiency

Other JS libraries like snap or svg.js focus on manipulating SVG elements by code. With Archer you can visually create behaviours for SVG elements in an editor and then control the graphic with a single line of JavaScript code. It’s quick and intuitive.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Import, create, integrate.

Archer starts with an existing SVG graphic. With Archer Editor you define behaviors and reactions for existing SVG elements. You then publish and integrate it in your project. Schedule a live online demo with Ulrich here.

EFFICIENCY MEETS OPEN SOURCE

This is for designers and developers who work on individual customer solutions and need reactive graphics quickly: Archer offers an editor that lets you visually define behaviors for SVG elements. Unlike programming formulas or using oversized proprietary solutions, Archer graphics are lightweight components that easily integrate in your project with the Open Source Archer JavaScript Runtime and are instantly usable on all devices.

Weather App

DESIGN MEETS ENGINEERING

How would you realise these examples with your current approach? Compare this to Archer: with Archer you use a basic SVG, design the behaviour of the elements and without further processing it is ready to be integrated in your software project. This really saves a lot of time and it instantly runs on all devices. Archer projects run in any environment that is capable of including a web container. Electron, Cordova, Java, … you name it.
