Displays images using escape codes
-ASCII-art is so 2013.
Shellpic uses escape codes to display images in a terminal or irc-client.
Running shellpic <image> in a terminal that supports 256-colors will get you something that looks like the image above.
If you happen to have a terminal that is capable of showing true colors, you can use the --shell24-switch to enable 24bit output. It will look something like this:
Shellpic can also be used with irc-clients. Run the script from your client and use the --irc-switch, the result will depend on the client used. This is how it looks in xchat:
Use the --animate (show the animation once, then exit) or --loop (animate and loop forever) to animate gifs.
If you have PIP installed:
sudo pip install Shellpic
If you do not have PIP or want the bleeding edge version of Shellpic:
# clone the repo git clone https://github.com/larsjsol/shellpic.git # install the package cd shellpic sudo python setup.py install
