A terminal application

Why Rio?

Rio is built over WGPU and Rust. So, it's based on the WebGPU API, which makes it suitable for general purpose graphics and compute on the GPU.

Applications using wgpu run natively on Vulkan, Metal, DirectX 11/12, and OpenGL ES; and browsers via WebAssembly on WebGPU and WebGL2.
