gruff: fractal explorer GUI using the ruff library

[ gpl, graphics, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Currently allows exploration only of the Mandelbrot Set fractal. Requires GTK, OpenGL, and GLSL fragment shader support.

Features in this version include:

  • Interactive fractal browser display (left click to zoom in, right click to zoom out, middle-click to center).

  • Session persistance (stored in ~.gruffstate.gruff - states can also be loaded from and saved to other files).

  • Tile cache (by default in ~.gruffcache - symlink it somewhere with a few GB of space if you plan on exploring a lot).

  • High-level feature finding using angled internal addresses (enter an address, for example 1 2 3 1/3 10, and hit return, then click the address to coordinates button).

  • Feature finding using period location (navigate to approximate location of the desired feature, click the period scan button).

  • Cache view (refreshed on program start) to visualize visited locations.

Future features might include image saving, external ray and nucleus period overlays, more feature finding and identification algorithms, customizable colour schemes, higher precision for deeper zooms, etc.
