Build Status

This crate provides rust bindings to the blend2d lib.

  • This project is currently WIP and therefor incomplete, due to this the crate will most likely go through breaking changes until a proper api has been figured out. Bear in mind that blend2d itself is also still in beta, meaning changes in their api will most likely be reflected in this crate as well in one way or another. This also means that some functionality is currently not correctly(or at all) implemented, for example, filling a context with an image will currently return an InvalidValue error.

  • Almost nothing is documented at this point so if confusion arises it might help to check out the C++ docs. This will hopefully change in the near future.

  • Not everything has been tested, so bugs might occur.


This crate requires CMake to be installed and available on PATH.

Also make sure to initialize the submodules after cloning the repository(git submodule update --init).


You can find the examples here.


Current Design Decision

  • The Clone Trait is currently implemented in such a way that it does weak clones by using the underlying ref-counting of blend2d. Deep clones can be achieved by using the corresponding DeepClone Trait.
  • OutOfMemory errors returned by blend2d will as of now panic the program by default.
