Rawloader is a library written in Rust for reading and developing camera RAW images taken by DSLR cameras. The library is written mostly written by Pedro Côrte-Real, and since March 2017 I contribute patches to the project. My biggest contribution so far is support for automatic image rotation based on metadata for portrait images.
Since I wanted to use Rawloader in my existing web applications I made simple Python bindings for it. They interface with Pillow to allow further manipulation such as thumbnailing.
