specktre

specktre is a tool for generating low-contrast desktop wallpapers from tiling patterns.

Here are some examples of the patterns it produces:

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/alexwlchan/specktre/development/output/demo.png

It can be used as a Python library, or invoked from the command-line.

Installation

To install specktre, run:

$ pip install specktre

Usage

To see a usage message, just run:

$ specktre --help

There are some examples of specktre used as a script and as a library in the examples directory in the GitHub repo.

What's in a name?

The word "speckled" came to mind when describing this pattern, and I wrote the first version shortly after the James Bond film SPECTRE had been released.
