Join Chris Converse for an in-depth discussion in this video About the exercise files, part of Design the Web: CSS-Controlled SVG with PHP.
- When you download and extract the Exercise Files, there's going to be a folder inside of there, called CH_01. Inside of there, there's an images directory, and an index.html file. Now if you open the html file up in a browser, I basically have a really simple layout here. I have a Heading area, with a background graphic, and three hyperlinks here, which are using SVG graphics as their background. If we come over to the images directory, we'll see the photo.jpg file, and each of the individual SVG graphics.
So what we're going to be doing in this course, is converting these SVG graphics to PHP files, and then sending instructions inside of our CSS reference to these images, to change the color of the various elements inside. So now that we know what we need to complete the course, and what the Exercise Files consist of, next we'll copy these files to a folder on our Desktop, and start building our project.
