  • GitHub repo art

    🎨 ASCII art library for Python (by sepandhaghighi)

    Project mention: Trying to print all combinations but I am not sure what is going wrong, I am not sure how to word my question. | reddit.com/r/learnpython | 2021-01-29

    of course you don't need to tie this to the class, you can also keep for example a separate JSON file that contains these mappings that you load globally. This is quite common for libraries with large lookup tables, see for example how the ASCII-art library art stores this for a huge amount of name-to-art lookups: https://github.com/sepandhaghighi/art/blob/master/art/art_dic.py

    Well, you’re in luck! There’s a modern version of TurboVision that works on modern systems. I used it the other day to show tvedit to some of the folks at work who were using nano. They were kinda mind-blown by the fact that editors in the late 80’s/early 90’s weren’t terrible.
