pasture-io 0.1.0

Support for reading and writing point cloud files with pasture
# pasture

A Rust library for working with point cloud data. It features:
-  Fine-grained support for arbitrary point attributes, similar to [PDAL](, but with added type safety
-  A very flexible memory model, natively supporting both Array-of-Structs (AoS) and Struct-of-Arrays (SoA) memory layouts
-  Support for reading and writing various point cloud formats with the `pasture-io` crate
-  A growing set of algorithms with the `pasture-algorithms` crate

To this end, `pasture` chooses flexibility over simplicity. If you are looking for something small and simple, for example to work with LAS files, try a crate like [`las`]( If you are planning to implement high-performance tools and services that will work with very large point cloud data, `pasture` is what you are looking for!

# Usage 

Add this to your `Cargo.toml`:
pasture-core = "0.1.0"
# You probably also want I/O support
pasture-io = "0.1.0"

# Development

`pasture` is in the early stages of development and is not yet stable.
