    Fast and clean SVG badges

    Greetings, Hacker News community!

    I am thrilled to present SpaceBadgers, a new free and open-source SVG badge generator I've been working on. It's located at

    SpaceBadgers is born out of the desire to offer more flexibility and customization for project badges, often used in open-source projects.

    It's fully open source, provided under the permissive MIT license, and will always be provided for free. The core badge worker is written in Rust, and so is the library behind it, which you can also find on under the name spacebadgers.

    I am excited to receive your feedback and suggestions. Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments. Contributions are also welcomed and appreciated. You can find the source code here:

  • shields

    Concise, consistent, and legible badges in SVG and raster format

  • SurveyJS

    Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App. With SurveyJS form UI libraries, you can build and style forms in a fully-integrated drag & drop form builder, render them in your JS app, and store form submission data in any backend, inc. PHP, ASP.NET Core, and Node.js.

  • upload-rust-binary-action

    GitHub Action for building and uploading Rust binary to GitHub Releases.

    I managed to fork the repository, set up rust and vscode, and run the CLI. Very cool stuff! I am not a Rust developer, though, so this is a pretty big barrier to entry for me to use the library. If you'd like to make it easier for people to run the code themselves, here's my recommendations:

    - Add clear instructions for building/running the code, assuming the developer is already familiar with Cargo. (clone the repo, cd into it, run 'cargo run -- --label Foo --status Bar --color green` like you mentioned in your other comment)

    - Add a github action workflow that builds+uploads the binaries as a Github Release, maybe using something like (I haven't used this but found it with some googling and it looks reasonable)

    No need to do either of these things, just my recommendation. Thanks again for releasing such a cool project, very nice work, and best of luck!
