ChromeLite was actually made by Google as an April Fools' joke -- and indeed, an annoying 'you can uninstall this!' message appears at the top of every page -- but we're kind of hoping that Google, or another developer, takes ChromeLite and turns it into a real ASCII browsing extension with configurable settings. If anything, it will provide an easy way to save bandwidth and CPU time.
Ok, we all know about that ASCII portraits of Mona Lisa, Elvis and other images for many years in our computers. Even some talented people developed programs for generating these kind of images automatically by ASCII. Nienke Sybrandy has made a further step by pressing ASCII art on a usual curtain. From distance it looks like a beautiful tree. When you approach you understand that all are just ASCII characters. A good unique application of well-known concept.
ASCII art is a graphic design technique that uses computers for presentation and consists of pictures pieced together from the 95 printable (from a total of 128) characters defined by the ASCII Standard from 1963 and ASCII compliant character sets...
ANSi to PNG converter - A set of tools to convert ANSi and artscene related file formats into PNG images...
Ansilove is an ASCii and ANSi to PNG converter, also supporting several other artscene-related file formats. It is written in PHP and includes a command line converter, along with a library to embed on web pages for doing “on the fly” conversions.
I’m pleased to announce the release of my minimalist ANSi and ASCii based themes for Chrome and Chromium. I kept everything simple on purpose, as the default theme is very clean, nice, and efficient : these two themes just aim to give a discreet text mode feeling to everyday life browsing, nothing more, nothing less.
The color differences from the original theme can be seen in the status and download bars as well as in the detached bookmarks bar (where I used color #07 (light gray) from the ANSI / EGA palette) and in the text links where color #08 (dark gray) was used.
We have create an algorithm based on the specifications below and tested it on several hundred pages. The simple algorithm is:
ASCII art occurs between PRE or XMP elements It must have greater than 5 lines of text It must have at least one sequence of 5 same characters
The algorithm works quite well at detecting ASCII art. It misses very few ASCII art images and gives a small number of false positives. Two of the things it detects as ASCII art are computer programming source code examples and guitar tabulature.
Ready to be blown away? Here’s just a few of the things that people do with a keyboard and a computer. Oh, and a lot of time. For the purpose of this post Ill show you the thumbnail first so that you can really be blown away.
