NeonView is a new minimalist, lightweight image viewer, completely free and open-source, licensed under the GPLv2 and developed by TuxArena.

This first release, codenamed ‘Betta splendens’, includes just a handful of features for now, however it is the base on which development of more advanced features will take place. Still, the goal of NeonView is to remain clean and lightweight, while also trying to implement only the needed functions that a simple image viewer should have.

Some of the features of NeonView:

  • supports many image formats, including JPG, PNG, SVG, GIF or TGA (any format supported by gdk_pixbuf)
  • allows navigation with next/prev buttons with images sorted by name
  • fit to window or normal size image view modes
  • it remembers the window size between sessions and can be started maximized (in order to remember these use Ctrl+Q to quit it for now, or just edit the ~/.neonview/neonview.cfg file)
  • allows manual configuration via ~/.neonview/neonview.cfg

The full announcement is located on the NeonView homepage, here.


You can download NeonView 0.2.0 binary package from here. To run it just uncompress the archive and double-click the neonview executable.
