Hi everyone! Hope 2020 has been kind to you so far!

I've written a simple CSS library to provide Instagram-like image filters for your websites and projects. It's called "Iguana", and it's just 1KB (for now)!

Here are a few of the filters: Iguana Screenshot

I haven't tried to reproduce the actual Instagram filters, either in name or in appearance, and everything was written from scratch. At the moment, there are 18 filters available, but I will be adding more in the future.

To test or download Iguana, head over to the Iguana website.

If you use Iguana in your project, I'd like to know (but it's not required)! I haven't included a license (though if I do, it'll be open source). Feel free to modify to your hearts desire.

Depending on the level of interest, I may set up a repository for Iguana on Gitlab or Github, so others can contribute. No promises though.

Enjoy!
