Cairo.jl / Luxor.jl alternatives (segfaults)


#1

I would like to create a meme generator API for a Julia blog post - and I wanted to use Luxor.jl for loading an image and adding some text on top of it. However Cairo.jl segfaults upon installation. Are there any other libraries to easily implement this? Thanks!

Ha, yes, Cairo started segfaulting (on macOS) last week… You could try Compose,jl…

Thank you, I’ll give it a try.
