vimiv screencast

:construction: NOTE: This Qt port is the future of vimiv. New features will only be implemented here and there are already many improvements compared to the deprecated gtk version. The old version is only recommended if you require a more stable software. In case there is anything you miss here, please open an issue. Check the roadmap for more details.

Vimiv is an image viewer with vim-like keybindings. It is written in python3 using the Qt5 toolkit and is free software, licensed under the GPL.

For much more information on vimiv, please check out the website and documentation. To learn how to get vimiv running, see the installation guide. Afterwards this is a good place to get started.
