Simple bootsplash that aims to adhere to the KISS philosophy. It's possible to put a background and simple animations are on the way to be supported. Since bootsplashes are most likely to be done by distro maintainers and are not meant to be easily changed by user, dietsplash is developed without scripting and lots of configurations like others. Its configurations are almost all done during compile time, including custom animations.
That said, dietsplash is targeted as a small bootsplash to be used in embedded systems but that can also be used on desktop. We keep it small and with not extra dependencies so all our precious I/O time can be used to actually boot faster.
