Version 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT, 31 January 2023
SkikoGraphics2D is an implementation of Java2D’s
Graphics2D API that targets Skia via the Skiko bindings. The project is exploratory at the moment, but potential uses for this are:
- to provide a path for Java applications to access the Skia rendering engine, perhaps providing speed and/or quality gains compared to Java2D as well as access to target formats supported by Skia (for example, SVG and PDF)
- to include libraries such as JFreeChart and Orson Charts in Jetpack Compose Desktop applications.
Note that these are potential uses, so far I haven’t tried those things out…if you have then let me know what worked and what didn’t work.
SkikoGraphics2D is being tested using Graphics2D Tester and produces the output shown below and now matches Java2D quite closely:
