  • svgbobrus

    Convert your ascii diagram scribbles into happy little SVG

    Project mention: Pikchr: A PIC-like markup language for diagrams in technical documentation | | 2024-01-06

    I recently had to draw some diagrams for documenting something. After looking at various Markdown-friendly options I landed on svgbob[1]. I believe it's a superior solution to these kinds of graph drawing tools for Markdown for one specific reason: the code is still readable. When I go to look at a Markdown file I don't always open the output. I will commonly open up a README file in Vim or just cat it to the terminal. In this case diagrams like those in this post is next to useless. I'm not going to read through some complex drawing definitions and try to visualise the results. With svgbob (or Typograms[2] or any of the other similar options) you can still read the Markdown text document and see the diagrams which is great!

    Of course this comes with a tradeoff, drawing the diagrams can be a bit of a pain. But I believe this can be solved by a good Markdown editor or editor plugin. Alternatively a spec like this could be converted into an svgbob-compatible diagram.


  • glium

    Safe OpenGL wrapper for the Rust language.

    Project mention: I don't understand how dependencies work | /r/rust | 2023-11-15

    I am trying to follow to this tutorial on glium and I can't even get a window to show up because of what I assume to be a lack of comprehension on my end about how dependencies work.

    Rust bindings for the FLTK GUI library.

    Project mention: Explain how to use fltk tile group | /r/rust | 2023-06-25

    I have added a tile example to the repo, it's based on the FLTK example.

  • lopdf

    A Rust library for PDF document manipulation.

  • kiss3d

    Project mention: Vizia: A declarative GUI library written in Rust | | 2023-07-05
  • folderify

    :file_folder: Generate pixel-perfect macOS folder icons in the native style.

    Project mention: Does anyone know where to find a macOS blue folder icon that has the Arc browser logo on it? As you can see in this screenshot, I need it to perfect the aesthetic of my current folders on my MacBook. It's not on so idk where to look. | /r/MacOS | 2023-06-03

    Anyway, I much prefer using the folderify utility instead of creating them by hand.

  • three-d

    2D/3D renderer - makes it simple to draw stuff across platforms (including web)

    Project mention: My 3d render has weird lighting artifacts | /r/opengl | 2023-06-05

    If you look closely at the second image, it has some weird triangle artifacts with the lighting. The first one i rendered in blender, the second one i used this rust 3d rendering library. Any help would be appreciated, this is my first time working with 3d rendering.

  • luminance-rs

    Type-safe, type-level and stateless Rust graphics framework

    Project mention: Introducing posh: Type-Safe Graphics Programming in Rust | /r/rust | 2023-06-04

    gives me same vibes as

  • rend3

    Easy to use, customizable, efficient 3D renderer library built on wgpu.

    Project mention: Meta Releases Intermediate Graphics Library | | 2023-07-07

    The WGPU people are still working through lock conflicts in that area. The idea with Vulkan land is that you should be able to load content while rendering is in progress. For that to be useful, all the layers above Vulkan also have to have their locking problems hammered out. Most open source game engines don't do that yet. Unreal Engine and Unity do, which is why you pay for them for your AAA title.
