Songrs: Song Lyrics Projection Application

I recently released v0.1.0 of Songrs. It is a free and open-source application for projecting song lyrics with a projector, similar to OpenLP, although at this point with a quite minimal set of features.

Songrs is written in Rust, and uses GTK for the GUI. The fundamental idea was to make a projection program that runs on GNU/Linux and uses local plain text and media files for its content, as opposed to databases, binary file formats and forced online services. This way, the content files can easily be managed with standard desktop programs and synchronized using general purpose file sync services such as Nextcloud.

Why have I done this, and why not just use OpenLP or some other existing program?

The program will hopefully be field-tested within a couple of weeks. We’ll see how that goes.

Songrs is licensed under the GPLv3, and its repo is here:
