Converting SVG to PNG via Linux CLI

I normally reach for imagemagick but its SVG to PNG rendering is reputedly not that great. Here's a tip from a colleague of mine, noting that -z forces non-gui usage,

$ apt-get install inkscape
$ inkscape -z -e hexagons.png -w 1024 -h 1024 ./hexagons.svg

You can also checkout its man page.
