I have no idea why you are asking this question in a forum about microcontrollers.
Also Google produces 616,000 results for 'open source gerber viewer'.
Try KICAD

I recall I saw you somewhere else.

KiCAD is good even though it is too big for my purpose.

I don`t use google for a long time. It is not trustworthy.

Anyone who want to open Gerber files, you can do this with a number of programs, most of which are free. These free Gerber viewers include GraphiCode GC-Prevue, PentaLogix ViewMate, and Gerbv. A few of them support printing and viewing the measurements. You could also use Altium Designer to open the Gerber file but it isn't free.
