Hi everybody,

I am Jean-Marie Geffroy, Founder at Mantano. We have developed reading apps since 2007. After developing reading apps integrating Adobe RMSDK and Mobipocket SDK for e-reader manufacturers such as Netronix and e-ink smartphones (Yotaphone), we launched our own Mantano Reader brand of reading apps for iOS and Android.

Since then, we are contributing a significant amount of open-source code to Readium and more:

• In 2016 we shared the first LCP implementation to EDRLab and allowed LCP to get traction.
• In 2018-2019 we worked on R2 for EDRLab as contractors to improve LCP and adapt it to PDF.
• In 2022 we open-sourced Iridium, which is our adaptation of R2 to the Dart language (Flutter for UI-related modules). Iridium includes a full-Dart LCP Client implementation.

We are also the developers of self-study language learning apps for the french pioneer in this domain, Assimil.

I also have been a board member at Readium Foundation and EDRLab.
Happy to be in this group and eager to "have fun" on some topics.

Very best regards

Jean-Marie Geffroy
