README.md

skadi is a lightweight image viewer for OS X.

It can jump to a previous/next file in a directory, similar to Windows' default image viewer.

skadi supports all image formats supported by Qt, this covers most of the popular formats: BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WebP, SVG, TGA, TIFF, WBMP and others.

Installation

Download the latest version from https://github.com/redcapital/skadi/releases, unpack and move into ~/Applications.

If you use Homebrew Cask, installation is as simple as running brew cask install skadi.

Building release version

There are some steps to be done to ensure QML files can be found and loaded. Assuming Qt will be installed in ~/qt and build folder is ~/skadi.

  • Install Qt >= 5.5. Use the installer from the official website, Homebrew version had some problems with macdeployqt.
  • Open skadi.pro in Qt Creator. Choose Release and build.
  • Go to ~/qt/clang_64/ and copy the qml folder into ~/skadi/skadi.app/Contents/Resources/.
  • Open the terminal, cd to the build folder and run ~/qt/clang_64/bin/macdeployqt skadi.app/
  • Now you should be able to launch the app by running ./skadi.app/Contents/MacOS/skadi
You can’t perform that action at this time.
