DVDTS - DVD Term Screensaver

DVD Screensaver style screensaver for terminal. Instead of the logo of DVD, it uses the distro name/os name or custom text.

The text does not hit the corner of terminal perfectly only if GCD (greatest common divisor) for terminal dimensions isn't 1.

Preview

Preview shows

dvdts -c yellow -t "Hello, World" -s 7
# and 
cowsay Hello, World | dvdts -a

Usage

Example

dvdts -a -c green -s 5

This will start the colors from green, cycle because of a flag, and text will move twice as fast.

Flags

-a      cycle through terminal colors
-c string
        color for the bouncing text (default "blue")
-s int
        speed of text [more is slower] (default 10)
-t string
        text to display (default "<OS name>")

Piping input

DVDTS supports piped input. For example

cowsay Hello, World | dvdts -a
