Durdraw runs in the terminal and is shell script friendly, for those wanting to spice up their automations. It has editing features such as importing ascii files to frames, duplicating and deleting frames, flipping between frames, and frames-per-second speed control during playback. It supports the mouse. Files can be loaded and saved in ASCII (.asc, .txt) or in DUR animation format. Files can also be saved in animated GIF (with FPS accuracy), PNG and ANSI formats. REQUIREMENTS: * Python 2.5.2 or higher (not tested with older versions) * Python Ncurses ALSO RECOMMENDED: * PNG and Animated GIF export requires that Ansilove be in your path. Ansilove can be found at: http://ansilove.sourceforge.net/ * Animated GIF export also requires the following Python modules, which can usually be installed with easy_install or your system's package manager: PIL images2gif * A terminal and font that supports Code Page 463 (US-Latin-1, Western ASCII, etc) is recommended for IBM-PC Extended ASCII. In other words, ANSI doesn't show up right in UTF-8 terminals. See optional instructions below for configuring mrxvt for this purpose. BASIC INSTALLATION: * Copy the file "durdraw" to a nice place like /usr/local/bin/ or ~/bin/ * Copy the file "durhelp.dur" to /usr/local/share/durdraw/ or ~/.dur/ OPTIONAL INSTALLATION: For PNG and animated GIF export: * Install PIL, images2gif and Ansilove (see RECOMMENDED section above) For a better durdraw terminal in Linux, FreeBSD or other X-Windows environment: * Install mrxvt * Install vga.pcf by copying it to /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc and then running these commands: $ mkfontdir /usr/share/fonts/X11/misc/ $ xset fp rehash * Give mrxvt IBM-PC colors and font settings by copying the contents of Xdefaults into your own ~/.Xdefaults file. You can create ~/.Xdefaults if it does not exist. COMMAND LINE USAGE: You can play a .dur file or series of .dur files with: $ durdraw -p filename.dur $ durdraw -p file1.dur file2.dur file3.dur ... Other command-line options: usage: durdraw [-h] [-p PLAY [PLAY ...]] [-q | -w | -x TIMES] [--nomouse] [-u UNDOSIZE] [-V] [filename] positional arguments: filename .dur or ascii file to load optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -p PLAY [PLAY ...], --play PLAY [PLAY ...] Just play .dur file or files, then exit -q, --quick Skip startup screen -w, --wait Pause at startup screen -x TIMES, --times TIMES Play X number of times (requires -p) --nomouse Disable mouse support -u UNDOSIZE, --undosize UNDOSIZE Set the number of undo history states - default is 100. More requires more RAM, less saves RAM. -V, --version Show version number and exit INTERACTIVE USAGE/EDITING: Use the arrow keys (or mouse) and other keys to edit, much like a text editor. Also: alt-k - next frame alt-' - delete current line alt-j - prev frame alt-/ - insert line alt-n - iNsert current frame clone alt-, - delete current column. alt-N - appeNd empty frame alt-. - insert new column alt-p - start/stop Playback alt-c - Clear canvas/movie alt-d - Delete current frame alt-m - Mark selection alt-D - set current frame Delay F1-F10 - insert character alt-+/alt-- increase/decrease FPS alt-z - undo alt-M - Move current frame alt-r - Redo alt-up - next fg color alt-s - Save alt-down - prev fg color alt-o - Open alt-right - next bg color alt-q - Quit alt-left - prev bg color alt-h - Help alt-R - set playback/edit Range alt-g - Go to frame # Can use ESC or META instead of ALT OTHER TIPS: * The mouse can be used for moving the cursor (even over SSH!) if your terminal supports Xterm mouse reporting. (In iTerm2 this is under Profiles, Terminal and Terminal Emulation.) * If extended characters are not working in gnu screen, try running the following screen command (by pressing ctrl-a and typing): :utf8 off off then type "clrl-a l" to redraw the window. * Good terminals to use in Mac OS X are the default Terminal.app and iTerm. To get extended characters working in MacOS X Terminal, follow these instructions (similar settings can be used for iTerm2): 1: Install dos437.ttf font (included) by double-clicking it. 2: Create a profile in Terminal Preferences/Settings with the following settings (similar settings can be applied in iTerm): + In Text tab, Font set to dos437 (I like 9pt) and "Display ANSI colors" and "Use bright colors for bold text" are checked + In Keyboard tab, "Use option as meta key" selected + In "Advanced" tab, Character encoding set to "Western (ASCII)" + Set background color to black (low or no transprency) and foreground color to white CREDITS: Sam Foster (http://cmang.org) Homepage: http://cmang.org/durdraw LEGAL: Durdraw is Copyright 2009-2015 Sam Foster (cmang), all rights reserved Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software for any purpose with or without fee is hereby granted, provided that the above copyright notice and this permission notice appear in all copies.
