what shell interputer are you using?? (i think auto completion will help me a lot)
lol i happened to find these thru chatgpt like yesterday nice to see how they can be used
there is figlet.nvim to do this directly in neovim
hii.. what figlet font are you using for that "i use arch btw" words?
Woah the combination of figlet, the 3d font and lolcat is soooo cool!!!!!
How about a more expanded tutorial using others such as Neofetch? Also converting png/jpg and getting the art (distro art, i.e.) to
format correctly in an editor like Kate, Kwriter, etc.
what is the programm called?
useless linux tools? nah, this is more useful to me than sed.
what colorscheme is your desktop? Look great!
Was trying to find some ASCII art in my repos README because they are too bland
Good video man, keep it up
I hope you start making some blogposts and some art like these there :P
Figlet and Lolcat are all-time classics. I rarely use them, but when I get a pang of nostalgia, well, there it is.
ASCII art has such an appeal I cannot quite explain... I'm a little younger to have lived the times when it truly proliferated, but in a web so over saturated it's suffocating it feels like a total breather.
Hahaha... ASCII art was the good old BBS days where everything was ASCII... Yay! Its back!
Yep I do it like a noob. I use a web site... 🤣
Did not know Figlet was a thing but it is cool. So Toilet is --gay... Now that is funny! 😆
I'm sure some "Karen" out there is going to be butt hurt over that one! Who cares... Lol
Thanks for the video..
