I wrote a simple image viewer about two weeks ago[1]. I changed my window
manager to dwm several weeks ago, but I couldn't find a good image viewer,
so I decided to write one. It's quite minimal, it can only display JPEG
images, only supports fullscreen mode, there is no fancy resampling or
caching, but it can display images and meets most of my use cases.

Subject: [dev] Lightweight, non-bloated, fast image viewer?

Hi Guys, Hi Friends,

I have slightly exagerated in the title of the message/thread. I would like to notice that we should have a lighter image viewer than feh, qiv and sxiv.

The three are excellent image viewers.

In my opinion, feh should be modified and cut down in terms of dependencies.
qiv is also very nice, but similar.
sxiv is lightweight and also uses imlib2 giblib, but I regret that it recommends to need libexif and libjs-jquery.

Anyhow the three are good and lightweight.

But in my opinion, we could think about adding a lighter application to be on the suckless page with the three current image viewer alternatives.

Best regards,
