neo simple X image viewer


nsxiv (the Neo Simple X Image Viewer) is a fork of the now-unmaintained sxiv project, with the purpose of being a drop-in replacement for sxiv, maintaining its interface, and adding simple, sensible features. nsxiv aims to be easy to modify and customise, and works nicely with tiling window managers.
