Re: sxiv - Simple image viewer written in C

Regarding features, while I do agree that it should remain a very lightweight application, there is but one that I miss from feh: showing imagenames pressing 'd'. It hasn't to be overtly complicated but simply filename + size + place in the list (if opening multiple images) will be enough.

Exactly, why 'd'? I prefer 'i' as 'info'.

All but the filesize are already shown in the window title. Displaying this information in an overlay at a window corner, either using the imlib2-api or the classic xlib approach, seems a bit too complicated, if compared to using just the window title. So it's highly unlikely, that I'm implementing this. Sorry.

I use dwm with the bar hidden so I didn't see the window title. Now I like sxiv even better :-)

Good point, I just entered forum to write about this feature, but you were faster wink. I also think, that despite people being used to feh's 'd', 'i' seems like better idea.

I understand it can be over complicated. I didn't notice the info in the window title because using awesomewm I don't have title bar and sometimes not even a statusbar. Anyway, just adding filesize in the window title will be ok then (and no need for a keybind of course) smile

Right, many thanks for this do one thing and do it well software.

It's this kind of image viewer I always want.
Great use with ranger the filemanger.

Now, I use feh only for thumbnails previewing.
Do you know if there is a great sxvi companion for that ?

Thumbnails with feh - in ranger? Can you tell me how to do that? Since I know sxiv and imlibsetroot I dropped feh from my mashine, but that would be a reason to reinstall it, if there is nothing else...

I think he meant

     -t, --thumbnails
             Same as Index mode, but the thumbnails are clickable image
             launchers.  Note that --full-screen does not affect the thumbnail
             window. It does, however, work for the image windows launched
             from thumbnail mode.

Right karol,

But I ve a feh profile in my .fehrc

# default
feh --scale-down -F

# thumb profile
thumb -t -Sfilename -C /usr/share/fonts/TTF/ -e DejaVuSans/8 -E 128 -y 128 -W 1280

So when run ranger I make a selection press "!" to type

feh -Tthumb %s

or without a selection to see all pictures in the curent folder type

feh -Tthumb .

I can see a thumnails plate and directly select a picture with mouse.

Need to read more feh manpage to fix the plate and images repetition (mosaic style) because I work with ratpoison wm.
if you have suggestion ?

Hope will help.

Re: sxiv - Simple image viewer written in C

First of all: version 0.5 is out...
New: option -r for opening directories recursively; show filesize in window title; key mappings 0/w/W, zoom to 100%/to fit window and resize window to fit image.

@mentat,gorilla: I will not implement thumbnails, so please stick to feh if you want them.

@Falstaff,Dieter@be: Sorry, but I also do not plan to implement gif animation support. Please have a look at gifview, which comes with extra/gifsicle.

@bert_t : Of course please don't implement this. It was not a demand, I prefer use plenty of simple tool like sxiv.
Indeed I m very happy you resist feature creeps.
I post only if someone know an "do one thing well" alternative to the feh function.

Thx for your work.

The recursive-option is great!

I don't plan to go back to feh. For the big photo-archives I can use the thumbnail-function of thunar (which is installed for my guest-account). Don't like feh for couple of reasons.

so, if i open a gif file with sxiv-git, notice it doesn't work, i have to close it and manually type another program name?

I'm currently thinking about some new mechanisms, which would make such interactions with other programs much simpler. I will shortly describe them here, and would like to ask you all to comment on which ones I should implement, if any:

1. New option flag -e to specify a command line, which is run on the currently visible image after pressing a certain key. Could also be extended to options -1 to -0 and corresponding keys F1-F10. Should the image always be reloaded after triggering such an external action?
2. Key mapping to print the filename of the currently visible image to stdout, or mark/unmark the currently visible image and then print the filenames of all marked images to stdout when quitting sxiv. This would be useful in scripts, for instance to open a bunch of images and decide which ones to delete.

XPM is working here, and, eh, wait there are still .xbm's out there? Well, it's not supported by imlib2 and it would be quite a lot of work to implement support for every "exotic" file format in sxiv, instead of just using imlib2. If you really want it, then please ask the imlib2 devs...
