#Ascii Py

Makin some pictures

Ascii py requires the use of Python 3.3 or greater because of an addition made to the shutil ibrary.

Install instructions

Using pip:

python3 -m pip install ascii_py

Manually:

git clone https://github.com/profoak/ascii_py
cd ascii_py
python3 setup.py install

If you want to use the gui component: python3 setup_gui.py install

This library requires the Pillow and colorama libraries. If you use the above install methods, these will automagically be installed.

python3 -m pip install -U Pillow colorama

To use the gui you need PySide

python3 -m pip install -U PySide

At the time of this commit PySide can only be installed on Python versions 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4. If you wish to use the GUI you must have installed versions 3.3 or 3.4. You can read more about it here https://github.com/PySide/pyside-setup/issues/53
