    A minimalistic crossplatform image viewer written in rust

    I've been working on an image viewer as a hobby project, and I feel it's probably at a point where it might be useful for others. It has some specific options for folks working with games/graphics and has the following features:

  • image

    Encoding and decoding images in Rust (by image-rs)

    It supports every format the great image crate supports, and improves upon that with animated gif, tonemapped hdr, webp, DDS with DXT1-5, psd, svg and tonemapped exr. If you want more, please add an issue on GH!

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • egui

    egui: an easy-to-use immediate mode GUI in Rust that runs on both web and native

    UI was not really a goal of this project, but I guess adding something like egui would be a great idea, for example for a better image analysis UI. I really can't figure out how to use egui with piston. Again, I'd be very happy for help or recommendations towards a better alternative.

  • resvg

    An SVG rendering library.

    I wonder, why does this use nsvg rather than resvg? The latter appears to support the SVG format better and is written almost entirely in safe Rust. Is there some shortcoming of resvg that I'm missing?

  • emulsion

    DISCONTINUED - A fast and minimalistic image viewer

    resvg was used in emulsion for the first approximation to SVG and it is quite good.
