About

Escape-time fractals powered by a formula compiler. Graphics are visualized using distance estimation, normalized iteration count, and/or atom-domain colouring. Navigation is enhanced by Newton-Raphson zooming: a single action can bring you to a mini-set or an embedded Julia.

Install

Prerequisites

sudo apt-get install \
  build-essential \
  git \
  ghc \
  cabal-install \
  libmpfr-dev \
  libgirepository1.0-dev \
  libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev \
  libgtksourceview-3.0-dev

The last 3 packages are for the GTK GUI, the CLI version doesn't need them. The GTK version is incompatible with GHC 8.2 due to a bug in that version (8.0 and 8.4 are both fine).
