Tapciify

CLI tool that can let you view images in terminal as ASCII art

Requirements

  1. CC linker (Windows - Microsoft Visual Studio with C++ Support) (Linux - gcc)

  2. Rust

Installation

cargo install tapciify

Converting image

  1. Run: tapciify -i imagePath -w imageWidth for image.

  2. Run: tapciify -i imagePath -w imageWidth -r for reversed colors.

Converting video

In this example I set framerate to 24 (but you can use any another)

Requires ffmpeg

  1. Make frames from video into dir:

    mkdir frames; ffmpeg -i bad_apple.mkv frames/%08d.jpeg
    
  2. Run:

    tapciify -i frames/* -w videoWidth -f 24
