H3Geo: a library for creating and managing H3 geospatial indexes

At Breakroom we’ve just open sourced a new library, H3Geo, for managing H3 geospatial indexes in Elixir.

It wraps the h3o library in Rust, using Rustler. But because we use Rustler Precompiled, you don’t need a working Rust toolchain to use it.

At the moment it just exposes functions for creating H3 cell IDs from points and polygons, as well as compacting and uncompacting.

Let us know if you find it useful, and we welcome PRs to expose more functionality.


Nice, I use h3 quite a bit, I’ll check it out and see if it fits any of my use cases, thanks!
