Random-art avatar generation

Project description

Bvatar creates a unique 8x8 graphical representation of a string.

Setup

Install from PYPI

Install with the following pip command:

pip install bvatar

Or if you want to be able to create bitmap images, use this instead:

pip install bvatar[bitmap]

Install development version

Download from github and install the development version with these commands:

git clone https://github.com/smileychris/bvatar
cd bvatar
pip install -e .[bitmap]

Usage

Import the bvatar class and use it like so:

from bvatar import Bvatar bvtr = Bvatar(‘text’) img = bvtr.image() img.save(‘some_file.png’, ‘PNG’)

Command-line Script

Generate a Bvatar (an 8x8 randomart avatar).

Usage:

bvatar [--mirror] [--no-color] [--px-size=<int>] ([TEXT] | [--hash=<sha1_hash>])
bvatar --ascii [--mirror] [--spaced] [--no-border] ([TEXT] | [--hash=<sha1_hash>])

The first format is for generating bitmap images. By default, the image is only displayed and not stored. To save the image, pipe to a file:

bvatar > some_file.png

Arguments:

TEXT
bvatar source text (otherwise a random bvatar is generated)

Options:

--mirror
generate a horizontally mirrored bvatar
--no-color
use greyscale rather than coloring the image
--px-size=<int>
actual size for each pixel [default: 16]
--hash=<sha1_hash>
rather than passing the text and having it SHA1ed, you can pass a hex encoded SHA1 hash explicitly
--ascii
output ascii rather than generating a bitmap image
--spaced
a “lighter” ascii art alternative
--no-border
don’t add a border around the ascii art
