Accepted answer

In CSS, something like:

path {
  fill: none;
  stroke: #646464;
  stroke-width: 1px;
  stroke-dasharray: 2,2;
  stroke-linejoin: round;
}

For the question: How to add border/outline/stroke to SVG elements in webpages with CSS ?

You can do in CSS:

path { outline: 3px solid green; }

Please note as of 2018 it is supported by chrome and safari, but might not be available across all modern browsers. See example below:

I applied outline via CSS to a <g> group with paths inside. In static it looks good. In dynamic (dragging) I can see periodically these artifacts (to the left)

enter image description here

UPDATE:

  • if outline is "solid" - there are no artifacts
  • safari mobile doesn't support outline on <g> elements...

Try adding CSS filter() dropshadow (this can be applied on any svg: <img>, background-image, in the dom, etc.)

or

SVG <filter> <feDropShadow>

Of course, Internet Explorer supports neither of these features.

svg {
  fill: #fff;
}

#example_1 {
  filter: 
    drop-shadow(-1px -1px 0px #3e68ff) 
    drop-shadow(2px -1px 0px #3e68ff) 
    drop-shadow(2px 2px 0px #3e68ff)
    drop-shadow(-1px 2px 0px #3e68ff)
}

Or, create some javascript function that clones each of the elements within the svg, removing fill/stroke attributes, and wrapping them in a g tag that has fill="none" and stroke attributes set. Then prepend that to the svg.
