Svelte Signature Pad

Capture smoothed signatures as SVG paths in Svelte


Svelte Action to capture smoothed signatures as SVG paths using the excellent perfect-freehand library.


Install using you package manager of choice:

pnpm i svelte-signature-pad

Import action into page and pass and object with ondraw and oncomplete method properties.

Each will receive a path which can be rendered as SVG in your component. ondraw fires while the user is drawing and would be the current stroke. oncomplete fires when they have finished the line (which could transition to a different color).


<script lang="ts">
  import { signature } from 'svelte-signature-pad'

  let layers: { path: string; width: number; height: number }[] = []

  let width: number
  let height: number
  let preview: string

  const ondraw = (path: string) => (preview = path)
  const oncomplete = (path: string) => {
    preview = ''
    layers = [...layers, { width, height, path }]

  const clear = () => {
    layers = []

<div class="relative w-full h-[360px] bg-gray-100 border border-dashed border-gray-300">
  <div class="absolute left-4 right-4 bottom-24 border-t border-dotted border-gray-300" />
    class="w-full h-full"
    use:signature={{ ondraw, oncomplete }}
    on:touchmove|preventDefault={() => false}
    {#each layers as layer}
      <svg class="absolute w-full h-full fill-black pointer-events-none" viewBox="0 0 {layer.width} {layer.height}">
        <path d={layer.path} />

    {#if preview}
      <svg class="absolute w-full h-full fill-gray-900 pointer-events-none" viewBox="0 0 {width} {height}">
        <path d={preview} />
  <button class="absolute top-2 right-2 px-4 py-2 text-sm text-gray-500 bg-white border border-gray-200" on:click={clear}>Clear</button>
