If you are a developer, the terminal is your one-stop for most of your day to day development activities. As a developer we made sure that our coding setup looks great, we have an amazing dark theme or minimal setup, etc, etc..
Recently I thought of making my terminal look geekier so I just added an
echo in my
bashrc file but that was not enough it has to look cool right? I just added the ASCCI representation of my profile picture.
So let's start by getting an image, I used one my own image that I created using gimp you can find the tutorial here
You can visit asciiart URL and convert your image into an ASCII version.
If you don't have an image you can find some beautiful ASCII art at ascii art archive
There are various tools to generate ASCII text I have used this one here
- First, open your terminal and create a new file
- Next, copy and paste you ASCII art and text to this file
You can hit a few tabs to adjust in the center and save the file to use in future
Now, we need to display the content of our file created in step 2 to get displayed in the terminal as soon as it is fired up
Fire up your terminal to have a look at your beautiful message waiting for you
Cakewalk right !! Go ahead and try this let me know your thoughts in the comment section.
