ico 0.1.0

A library for encoding/decoding ICO image files


A pure Rust library for encoding/decoding ICO image files.

Documentation: https://docs.rs/ico/


An ICO file (.ico) stores a collection of small images of different sizes and color depths (up to 256x256 pixels each). Individial images within the file can be encoded in either BMP or PNG format. ICO files are typically used for website favicons and for Windows application icons.

CUR files (.cur), which store Windows cursor images, use the same file format as ICO files, except that each image also comes with (x, y) hotspot coordinates that determines where on the image the user is pointing. This libary supports both file types.
