      JSX doesn't support conventional tag naming.

      For example, you may have an SVG that contains:

      <path class='class-1' data-name='name-1' d='M-100'/>

      JSX wouldn't be able to parse this correctly.

      Instead, the correct JSX would be something like:

      <path className="class-1' dataName='name-1' d='M-100'/>

      (class becomes className and data-name becomes dataName)

      These are just simple examples, but in a large SVG this can be tedious.

      Great tool!

      Hey Alessandro,

      Besides the stuff Simon already explained it also converts the inline style to attributes or it converts to Javascript objects.

      Basically <svg style='fill:red;margin-left:20px;'.. will throw an error in React, but using this tool the output will be like this <svg fill='#f00' style={{marginLeft: 20}}.. which is valid JSX code.

      You will find this tool usefull mostly when working with SVG sprites in React.
