Made a terminal video player! It’s not even close to done yet, but it should work out to being an entire youtube clone.Finally got my Klien bottle filled after MUCH work. It's so much harder than you think to fill...
Working on a hi-res terminal art Python lib. (it's NOT zoomed out!)
testing... some stuff:
Sent a letter to my school district's tech department:
TIL: My school put my website on their blacklist...
Found a Google easter egg
Got some pycon speaker swag!
Found out that goat and cow can talk to each other...
Do you like custom slack emoji? Do you like pixel art? Combine them with PixelArt (I couldn't think of a better name!). PixelArt converts any image into pixels, and then down samples the colors to only ones that have CSS color names. It then translates these pixels into emoji. (example image below). I would really recommend NOT using this in a large channel like #lounge because a bunch of emoji can really cause browsers to lag.
Here's how to use it: just type /art <URL to image> [width] [prefix] in any public channel. Width is 20 by default, don't do more than 50! The default prefix is p, so p_cyan is :p_cyan:. There is another prefix: balloon which looks like this: :balloon_cyan:. If you want other emoji sets uploaded I have a simple way to do it. Just message me and I'll upload a full set.
Code is open source at github.com/cole-wilson/pixelart. I still have a lot to do on this, so not all images may come out cleanly.
Try it out at #pixel!
Found out about 3d contribution graphs with GitHub skyline.
Speaking at PyCon in May!
Got terrified until I remember it was April fool's:
Hello! Today I am happy to announce that I am releasing Sailboat (github.com/cole-wilson/sailboat) for the first time! ⛵ Sailboat is a Python developer’s best friend. It’s a Python build tool that can do anything you need it to! It supports a countless number of plugins — you can even make your own. Sailboat is made for anyone, whether you are a beginner on your very first project, or a senior software engineer with years of experience.
Let’s say that that you have created a basic game, Guess My Number, and you want to send it to all of your friends. There are a lot of different ways you can do this, but using Sailboat is the easiest. All you have to do is type three commands: sail quickstart, sail build, and sail release, and you can have a Homebrew file, a pip installable package, and a PyInstaller desktop app in less than 5 minutes. So easy! :python:
You can check it out at github.com/cole-wilson/sailboat and sailboat.colewilson.xyz
Please let me know what what you think, and if you find any bugs let me know, or submit an issue!
Today/yesterday I release my first installable python app: nought. It organizes all of your files in custom ways that you define. For example, sort all your screenshots into folders by month. It includes powerful options and is super customizable.
If you have any questions/find any bugs. Please submit an issue or PR!
