Dinosaur Remix

Dinosaur Remix is a web page that takes Dinosaur Comics and remixes them randomly, hopefully in interesting ways. It uses PHP, Python, and jQuery to do its remix-o-matic dance.

You can see it here: http://definingterms.com/dinoremix/

Using

If you want to host your own Dinosaur Remix page, just get a copy of the source and put it in a web-accessible directory. Make sure your web server is set up to run PHP scripts from this directory. Then, run "python downloadComics.py" to download the comics from the Dinosaur Comics site and divide them into panels. You can set up a cron job to do this daily if you want it to always be up-to-date.

The Python scripts require the Python Image Library module. On Ubuntu systems, you can install the module with this console command:

sudo apt-get install python2.7-pil

Or, for Python 3:

sudo apt-get install python3-pil
