YAITAA - Yet Another Image To A(NSI) Art (converter)

Codacy Badge

Yes, very original. Old name is asciify-reborn for reasons stated bellow

Reasons for reimplementation

Everything is already described in hatkidchan/asciify, but just as recap:

  1. I'm not happy with old project structure
  2. Some new features may be pain in the ass to add
  3. Spaghetti code
  4. Literally dublication
  5. Separate binaries for each mode
  6. Git submodules. Yay.

Build instructions

1. Make sure that you have C compiler and make

cc --version && make --version && echo 'ok'

Both of commands should succeed.

2. Clone repo

git clone --recursive https://github.com/hatkidchan/yaitaa
cd yaitaa

2. Build it


3. Run it

./yaitaa -M braille -S 256 -W 80 -H 24 ~/images/kitty.png

Build end notes

1. It is preferred to use clang as your compiler

Main reason being that it is more strict, so any issues I've missed may be reported on that step. Feel free to send them to me!

CC=clang make

2. Strip binary to reduce size (saves ~100KiB)

strip ./yaitaa

3. Installation

# as root
make install # Will install it to /bin/

Alternatively, you can install it to your local user directory, if it's in your $PATH:

make install PREFIX=$HOME/.local/ # will install it to $HOME/.local/bin/
