Hello,

I am developing a new package for quickly sketching svg images, (see, and
try
out, sketch-mode at https://elpa.gnu.org/devel/). With the package, I can
already quickly create a sketch and subsequently quickly save it and insert
a
link in some org-mode buffer (using the `b` transient suffix). Also I can
quickly insert some image (using the `I` suffix), but then unfortunately the
image will not get saved.

As svg is just xml, for small sketches I would prefer to insert directly
the xml
into the org-buffer within an image block, in which I can quickly toggle
showing
the image using `C-c C-c` (or `org-toggle-inline-images`). Also, exporting
such
xml should work perfectly fine when exporting to e.g. html.

I guess a normal source block is not suitable, because I would like to
create
the image overlay directly within the block. I am happy to (help)
implement(ing)
such a feature, but I thought it would be wise to first discuss and
'enquire'
for suggestions here.

Thanks you!

Also, I already looked at the org source to see how to add e.g. a
#+BEGIN_IMAGE block,
but I found the 'api' quite overwhelming. So I am hoping that some
experienced developer
could maybe give some advice/explain (for) how to approach/implement this.

You can try to define a special block and add appropriate
org-ctrl-c-ctrl-c-hook to display the overlay.

For defining special blocks, you can try
https://github.com/alhassy/org-special-block-extras/

Hope it helps.

Best,
Ihor
