This is a really high quality crate!

The library implements graphical primitives, so there's no use of unsafe. Where applicable, the author has quoted sources (e.g. "approximation taken from") and made explicit comments in regards to accuracy and assumptions made. A lot of code has direct links to academic research, and it's obvious the author has gone to great lengths to ensure good algorithmic complexity (most operations are constant time where possible, no use of loops to brute-force a solution, etc.). has been able to verify that all files in the crate's tarball, except Cargo.lock, are in the crate's repository with a git tag matching the version. Please note that this check is still in beta, and absence of this confirmation does not mean that the files don't match.

Crates in the registry are tarball snapshots uploaded by crates' publishers. The registry is not using crates' git repositories, so there is a possibility that published crates have a misleading repository URL, or contain different code from the code in the repository.

To review the actual code of the crate, it's best to use cargo crev open kurbo. Alternatively, you can download the tarball of kurbo v0.11.0 or view the source online.
