An extension of svg.js which allows to draw elements with mouse

This gem bundles the upstream distribution for use with the Ruby on Rails framework. The version number of the gem always tracks the upstream javascript release and the gem itself doesn't provide any additional methods or helpers. If a need for helpers arises in the future they will be developed as a separate gem with this one as its dependency. Should a gem bug be discovered an additional version identifier will be appended and incremented after the upstream version number.

The gem is developed and tested against Rails 5
