This repo holds an API for 2D graphics drawing.
This repo is structured as a core API crate, "piet" and a separate crate for each back-end, currently "piet-direct2d", "piet-cairo", and "piet-web". One motivation for this structure is that additional back-ends can be written without coupling to the main crate, and clients can opt in to the back-ends they need. In addition, it's possible use multiple back-ends, which will likely be useful for testing.
A companion for Bézier path representation and geometry is kurbo.
The piet-cairo crate depends on the cairo library, found at
https://www.cairographics.org/download/. A simple test of the cairo
backend is to run
cargo run --example basic-cairo, which should
produce an image file called "temp-cairo.png".
The piet-direct2d create works on Windows only. Build with
cargo build --all to include it. A simple test of the direct2d backend is
cargo run --example basic, which should produce an image
Since the project is in its infant stages, there's not currently a set roadmap. For a good idea of what the library will eventually be capable of see this list of requirements to be a backend 2D graphics library for the SVG rendering library resvg.
Contributions are welcome! It's in early stages, so there are lots of opportunities to fill things out.
You can find other collaborators at xi.zulipchat.com under the #druid stream.
The library is of course named after Piet Mondrian. It's abstract and hopefully will be used for drawing lots of rectangles.
