Render image files in the terminal

Project description

Render images in the terminal. Pronounced ‘Lo-Res’.


pip install lores. Done.

lores depends on [pillow][], [requests][], and [vari][]; the above command installs dependencies as needed.

[pillow]: [requests]: [vari]:


Render a local or remote image in your terminal:

lores fixtures/parrot.png lores –columns=40



As expected, via -h or –help:

usage: lores [-h] [-c COLUMNS] imfile

Render images on the terminal.

positional arguments:
imfile image file to render
optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-c COLUMNS, --columns COLUMNS
 width of img in terminal columns


  • better error reporting (don’t just defer to e.g. requests or PIL libs)
