    :partly_sunny: The right way to check the weather

    Project mention: Is there any simple shell script or a c/c++ program that gives me the current location(latitude, longitude)? | | 2022-08-17

    I want these numbers to use with, to automatically show my current weather:

    A cross platform package to do curses-like operations, plus higher level APIs and widgets to create text UIs and ASCII art animations

    Project mention: CLI Tools on windows [Python] | | 2022-07-25

    I've used asciimatics in the past to good effect.

  • Scout APM

    Project mention: Need some great looking art? MidJourney AI Image Generator can definitely do some inspiration | | 2022-08-04

    ASCII art was low hanging fruit at the beginning of the neural net gold rush… DeepAA was made all the way back on the first version of Tensorflow!

  • video-to-ascii

    It is a simple python package to play videos in the terminal using characters as pixels

    Project mention: How was this effect of code replacing the headshots done? | | 2021-11-04

    you could use one of the many video-to-ascii command line tools to render out a video you made first. then you can overlay that into your actual video. It doesnt look like thats what they did but i think it could look even better than this if executed right

  • ASCII-generator

    ASCII generator (image to text, image to image, video to video)

    Project mention: Nerd Snipe: How does this webapp work in the backend? | | 2022-03-07

    Damn got RickRolled in ASCII Art. I think it's this not sure tho.

  • asciidots

    Project mention: 100 Languages Speedrun: Episode 60: Asciidots | | 2022-01-19

    Asciidots is an esoteric 2D language. The most obvious question is how it compares to the classic 2D language Befunge.

  • pyfiglet

    An implementation of figlet written in Python

    Project mention: Making a command-line rpg in python (Day 1) | | 2022-02-04

    While researching on how I could make my "welcoming" message look a bit more fancy and unique, I stumbled across the pyfiglet library! It allows for a great way of adding amazing text to your command-line interface:

  • ascii-telnet-server

    Can stream an ~20 minutes ASCII movie via Telnet emulation as stand alone server or via xinetd daemon. Using famous ASCII art animation from (Star ASCIIMATION Wars)

    Project mention: reverse-reverse telnet? I want to dial in to a router and forward that connection to something else | | 2021-11-08

    Theres still some things I need to iron out / test. I've spun up the classic style ASCII Star Wars and connect to it over the modem. It worked exactly once and now it's just garbled mess. Not sure if its too fast for the modem, or some encoding issue. I'm sure I'll figure it out.

  • pyTermTk

    Python Terminal Toolkit

    Project mention: This Week in Python | | 2022-03-04

  • Charcoal

    A concise language for sketching ASCII art.

    Project mention: How feasible is it to create your own programming language? | | 2021-11-16

    The worth of the effort depends in what problem it solves. If its a toy for you, that's up to you. If you expect other people to use, it needs some thought and design. An example of one such language of some utility is charcoal which was written to be able to write very short programs for code challenges (they're not intelligible - but they don't take much to type). Another is hexagony which was created to be interesting. Were they worth the effort? Someone thought so.

  • vim-boxdraw

    An ASCII box drawing plugin for Vim

  • ASCII-Video

    Blazing fast ASCII Image/Video Renderer.

    Project mention: Real Time Color ASCII Rendering in Python using NumPy Vectorization | | 2022-05-02

    Project mention: Real Time Color ASCII Rendering in Python using NumPy Vectorization | | 2022-04-13

    I've always wanted to make an ASCII renderer, but the drawing functions from pillow for writing characters were always too slow to get close to real time. I set out to see if this could be vectorized and this is what I came up with. I also made a video about the algorithm:, and made a repo showcasing the algorithm working on a webcam:
