Turn images on your heard drive or on the internet to asciiart…even
New In This Version: Colorized output!
From The Command Line using the ‘asciiart’ executable:
$ asciiart ~/Desktop/uncle_larry.jpgor even
$ asciiart http://www.google.com/images/srpr/logo3w.png
$ asciiart -h
Usage: asciiart [options] <path_or_url>
-w, --width WIDTH Width of the finished Ascii Art
-c, --color Switch to use colored terminal
output (Default: false)
-i, --invert-chars Invert the character map.
Depending on your terminal and image this can make the image clearer
(or a lot worse)
-v, --version Show AsciiArt version
-h, --help Show this message
It relies on rmagick, so…you know…make sure your have imagemagick
