Illustrator SVG > Polyline > Wont animate

See original GitHub issue

Hello, sorry for the disturbance, but despite a lot of attempts from me in both editing the html and the svg itself, I can’t seem to make the animation to work. It just appears instantly.

Here is my code:

For SVG:

<svg version="1.1" id="logo" class="polyion" xmlns:x="&ns_extend;" xmlns:i="&ns_ai;" xmlns:graph="&ns_graphs;"
     xmlns="" xmlns:xlink="" xmlns:a=""
     x="0px" y="0px" width="600px" height="400px" viewBox="0 0 600 400" style="enable-background:new 0 0 600 400;"
<polyline stroke-width="3" stroke="#ff0000" class="st0" points="108.9,14.1 305.8,87.7 256.3,198.7 136.1,48.2 "/>
<polyline stroke-width="3" stroke="#ff0000" class="st0" points="113.7,385.3 128.1,317.6 158.6,358.5 118.9,382.2 "/>
<polyline stroke-width="3" stroke="#ff0000" class="st0" points="128.1,317.6 208,385.9 223.7,307.1 136.1,316.7 "/>
<polyline stroke-width="3" stroke="#ff0000" class="st0" points="208,385.9 305.8,87.7 385.6,253 217.9,378.5 "/>
<polyline stroke-width="3" stroke="#ff0000" class="st0" points="358.5,160.8 385.6,253 421.1,127.3 366.3,156.6 "/>
<polyline stroke-width="3" stroke="#ff0000" class="st0" points="421.1,127.3 416,185.9 502.8,157.1 425.1,128.8 "/>

For JS:

<script src=""></script>
document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function() {
    var svg = new Walkway({ 
      selector: '#logo',
      duration: '4000',

Thanks @wjramos

@dennisjerdz – You aren’t importing Walkway in that pen (evident from the browser console, stating Walkway is undefined), well it looks like you were trying to – but your script include was after the closing </body> tag which is invalid

See my fork that includes the library:
