Nannou is founded on three foundational motivations:
A fast, modern language. When experimenting with the cutting edge in audiovisual processing high performance becomes a necessity. When performing live or creating long-running installations reliability becomes equally important. Rust ticks these boxes and more. Read more about why we chose Rust here.
Batteries Included. One of the beauties of being a creative coder is that we have the potential to create works in a wide range of domains. Nannou aims to give equal priority to a full suite of creative I/O including graphics, multi-windowing, audio, lasers, lighting and more.
Open Source & Liberally Licensed. Access to these technologies is often expensive and locked behind proprietary systems. We believe in democratising this space by open-sourcing Nannou for everyone to use.
