I would like to know whether it is possible to create a circular gradient or alternative one which follows a given path in Inkscape.
This is the effect I would like to create:
To generate this image I created lots of small wedges and manually set each individual wedge's alpha value.
This question was answered for Adobe Illustrator in How to apply a gradient effect for a particular circular path? and for Gimp in Create a clockwise gradient in GIMP, however I was unable to find an answer for Inkscape.
