Python terminal image renderer
Imgrender: Python Terminal Image Viewer
Terminal image viewer in python, inspired by https://github.com/stefanhaustein/TerminalImageViewer. A piece of software designed to render images on the linux/bash command line. It can either be used as a CLI or as a python library. It should work on most modern terminals, including mobaxterm for windows and jupyter notebooks.
to Install imgrender, run
pip install imgrender
usage: imgrender [-h] [--width WIDTH] [--height HEIGHT] path Render images on the command line positional arguments: path the image path optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --width WIDTH width of the rendered image (default 60 pixels) --height HEIGHT height of the rendered image (default 60 pixels)
Simply import the render function from the imgrender library. The function has two arguments, the image path (positional), and the scale parameteter (keyword), which takes a tuple with two integer (height, width)
In : from imgrender import render In : render('frog.jpg', scale=(40, 60)) (this will render the image stored in 'frog.jpg' with 40x60 pixels)
The render function can be called without passing in a scale argument, this will use the default scale parameters of (60, 60)
below is an image of the city of Portsmouth generated as a 60x60 visualization.
And here is the original image
Finally, here is the same imaged visualised as 250x250 pixels
