terminal picture

Here’s a quick shell function to convert an image for display in the terminal. It requires imagemagick, and node img-cat.

```# terminal-picture takes an image file as an argument and displays it at

terminal width with xterm-256-colors

function terminal-picture { WIDTH_HEIGHT=identify $1 | awk '{ print $3 }' | sed -e 's/x/ /g' PIC_WIDTH=echo $WIDTH_HEIGHT | awk '{ print $1 }' PIC_HEIGHT=echo $WIDTH_HEIGHT | awk '{ print $2 }' PIC_RATIO=expr $PIC_WIDTH / $PIC_HEIGHT TERM_RATIO=expr $COLUMNS / $LINES if [ “$TERM_RATIO” -gt “$PIC_RATIO” ]; then convert $1 -resize xexpr $LINES - 1 /tmp/terminal-picture.png && img-cat /tmp/terminal-picture.png; else convert $1 -resize expr $COLUMNS / 2 - 2 /tmp/terminal-picture.png && img-cat /tmp/terminal-picture.png; fi } ```
