Background for the second project of ARTV3
python3 everything.py [url]
It takes a website url and generates an image procedurally.
Very good for wikipedia, but most other popular websites (facebook, twitter , etc) are mostly JS so it wont work as well.
Also, I rushed this, so it's not the most organized code (modular, etc).
How to Run:
I'm gonna assume you are on Mac. The parts under the instructions you paste into terminal.
