Fractal Explorer


A simple Julia and Mandelbrot Set explorer built using Rust. This was created as a learning project and is based on this great tutorial.

The explorer can be run as a standalone desktop application (should work for Windows, Linux and MacOS) or as a web application for which a demo is available.

Live Demo


  • Mouse Left Click: Toggle Julia set c parameter selection.
  • Mouse Cursor Position: Select Julia set c parameter.
  • Mouse Wheel | Trackpad | Up & Down Arroy Keys: Zoom on cursor position.
  • Mouse Right Click: Hold and drag to translate fractal.
  • J | M Keys: Toggle between Julia and Mandelbrot sets.


To build the executable run:

cargo build --release

There is a Windows executable available as an artifact of the v0.1.0 release which can be downloaded here. Please always be very careful when downloading executable files from the internet.


To build the web application run the following command. You may need to install wasm-pack via cargo install wasm-pack.

wasm-pack build --target web --out-dir public/pkg

All files related to the static site will be placed under public with index.html the entrypoint. You can server the site locally using python3 -m http.server and then navigating to http://localhost:8000.

python -m http.server 8000 --bind --directory public
