Good morning, this is my last lib, a lightweight image loader for Android. Any feedback or contribution is appreciated.

Hey, your library seems interesting, but how do you convince me(and everyone else) to use Theia instead of Glide or Picasso?
PS. in my opinion you do some great work PS 2. I think there is too much text in readme at once. You can for example move some of it to wiki page (things more advanced than hello world)

Glide doesn't support AndoridX, it's heavy and APIs are complex and verbose Picasso doesn't support VectorDrawables and had some problems. I. E. When a new requests is created for an ImageView, old requests on it are deleted, so I can't define a custom placeholder that it isn't a drawable, since the request will be deleted before its completed. Readme is massive, I know, but I'm keeping updated as much as possible for now, then when apis are "stable" I'll find a better organization for that. Thanks for your response 🍻

Wiki created, I'll trim the Readme 😁
