textFlow

textFlow is an ruby script for OS X that talks to iTunes via AppleScript and converts the current track's album art into ASCII for display in a terminal.

Requirements

You'll need to use Homebrew to install ImageMagick and jp2a:

brew install jp2a imagemagick

You'll also need to install the appscript gem:

gem install rb-appscript

or

bundle install

Operation

Start the program:

./textFlow.rb

Then:

  • switch between songs with the arrow keys
  • pause and play with the space
  • mute and unmute (100% volume) with down and up keys
  • save current album art to artwork with s
  • quit with q
