This plugin adds the viewBox attribute to your SVGs based on the width and height attributes. The difference between this plugin and the built-in removeDimensions plugin is that svgo-add-viewbox does not remove the width and height of your SVGs.

In order to use this plugin correctly, your SVGs should have their width and height attributes specified.
