Eva is a gemini protocol browser written in Rust using the gtk+ toolkit. Eva is focused on delivering a simple yet powerful interface and clear, readable and beautiful page rendering. It has no designs on being the most fully featured Gemini browser, but instead wants to be the most polished native Gtk+ Gemini client that stays out of the user's way.

Eva's gemtext rendering has been designed to be clean yet visually appealing, using modern css styling to visually separate elements such as block quotes and preformatted sections, using colored cards with rounded edges and box shadows. The default color scheme has been chosen to provide great readability, while giving the user a great deal of control over appearance.

Eva is currently alpha quality software and is under heavy development. Some features are not yet implemented and there may be bugs. However, rest assured that when Eva sees an official release it will be a polished user experience.
