A Rust Desktop Background Project.

Currently, it creates a window which looks somewhat likes this, except animated. An image

CPU usage is around 0-1% on my machine, which is pretty good. GPU usage is a bit pesky, however. More research is required, but at least the power draw is equivalent to firefox while scrolling. Should run on Windows/Mac/Linux. Open an issue if you run into a problem.

A Roadmap for the future

  • Better shaders
    • Integration with shadertoy
    • More colors! Better images!
  • Make the window actually behave like the screen background
    • A la desktopgalaxy would require X11 badness.
    • Might (?) break cross-platform nature, which we would like to maintain.
