Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
Illustrator is good but expensive.
How to improve SVG file?
Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
How to create SVG fonts?
You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts. I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.
Just so you all know I actually have done something. I have pushed the source to both my github and to sourceforge, please commit to the experimental branch and I will merge it into the stable branch once it is safe. Also, nothing meaningful happens yet so don't get too excited. Only the Visual studio build works right now. I haven't set up the Xcode or Makefile builds yet, I'm trying to do them now.

Hi guys! I'm new on Hackintosh and I have a little problem (I think it's little). Yesterday I made my first hackintosh on a Xiaomi Notebook Air. All went well, but after an update (from High Sierra to 10.13.4) after the first reboot, in the bootloader doesn't appear nothing. I tried with the USB with Clover but I only can reinstall the entire system, I can not boot the system. It has a solution or I need to reinstall all again?
Thanks a lot and sorry if the question is fool.
Slice is glad to present a new EFI bootloader.
Now version 2 rEFIt based.
It is open source based on different projects: Chameleon, rEFIt, XNU, VirtualBox. The main is EDK2 latest revision.
I also want to thank all who help Slice with the development. Credits and copyrights remain in the sources.
There is a WIKI
If you have a question please provide outputs from DarwinDumper (formed from Trauma tool). Thanks Trauma!
