Gomics-v

A GTK comic viewer

Gomics-v is a GTK comic and image archive viewer written in Go, available under the GNU GPL v3 or later.

This is a personal fork of Gomics (without the -v). Please also consult the main project’s README at https://github.com/salviati/gomics.

This fork has been made with personal use for reading manga with mouse-centered navigation in mind. Consequently, some aspects of other workflows might have been broken.

Changes from Gomics

  • Add Jumpmarks

    Temporary page marks for quickly jumping around the currently open archive. See the Jumpmarks menu in the menu bar for more information.

  • Add Hide UI option (Alt+M to hide/unhide).

  • Add experimental HTTP archive support

    See File › Open URL (experimental) for a detailed explanation. A HTTP archive can alternatively be loaded by providing the URL as a program argument (see ./gomicsv --help) or by pasting the URL into the program.

  • Rework page navigation

    • Click the left/right half of the image area to go to the previous/next page.

    • Drag with the middle mouse button to pan around the image.

  • Add integration with Kamite (a desktop Japanese immersion companion)

    Right-click on text block for automatic OCR. Right-hold-click to initialize manual block recognition selection. Must be first enabled in Preferences.

  • Add Remember reading position option

    Automatically saves the last reading position for each archive and resumes reading at that position. Must be first enabled in Preferences.

  • Add Save image as… command

  • Add Copy image to clipboard command

  • Polish the look of preferences UI.

  • Make the Background color preference functional.

  • Reorganize the codebase.

  • Various other minor tweaks (and breakages).

Installation

Download the latest release package from the Releases page and extract it to the location where you want to keep the program files (e.g., /opt/gomicsv).

Or build it from the source:

Known issues

  • On GNOME, Hide UI breaks once the window is made full screen or maximized.

Building

git clone "https://github.com/fauu/gomicsv"
cd gomicsv
make build

A self-contained Gomics-v executable will be produced at target/gomicsv.

Building requires go and some GTK-related dependencies. See gomics: Requirements. GTK-related build steps might take up to 15 minutes on first compile.
