''tsvg'' - Thingy SVG writer - package to create svg image files with a syntax close to Tcl and to SVG. Using *cairosvg* writing PDF and PNG files is as well possible.
**Description**
[DDG] 2021-08-30: The package provides one command ''tsvg'' which can hold currently just a single svg code collection. All commands will be evaluated within the tsvg namespace, all unknown methods will be forwarded to the standard tsvg::tag method and produce svg code out of them. So `tsvg dummy x="20" hello` will produce: `<dummy x="20">hello</dummy>` as output. If the tool https://cairosvg.org/%|%cairosvg%|% is installed as well PNG and PDF files can be written since version 0.3.0
