From Crates.io

Start by obtaining Rust from https://rustup.rs. Afterwards, run

cargo install termimage

After the installation process finishes, running termimage should produce an error message. If it does, you're ready to move on to the Usage sexion below.

If, however, you've encountered a problem during the installation, do not hesitate to open an issue here.

From Debian repository

The following line in /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb https://debian.nabijaczleweli.xyz stable main

With my PGP key (the two URLs are interchangeable):

wget -O- https://debian.nabijaczleweli.xyz/nabijaczleweli.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add
# or
sudo wget -O/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/nabijaczleweli.asc https://keybase.io/nabijaczleweli/pgp_keys.asc

Then the usual

sudo apt update
sudo apt install termimage

will work on x86_64 and i686.

See the repository README for more information.

From pre-built executables

Alternatively, have a glance over at the releases page, which should host Windows and Linux x86_64 binaries.

Installation should be a matter of downloading them, marking as executable, and copying somewhere to your $PATH.

termimage IMAGE_PATH

Print all images in a dir to a file.

(for f in $(find image_dir -type f); do termimage -s 150x33 $f; done) > out_file

For more usage examples see the documentation.
