:parrot: for your terminal



Either grab a build on the releases page or clone and run...

$ go get -u github.com/jmhobbs/terminal-parrot
$ terminal-parrot


There is a tap for this as well, it's jmhobbs/parrot

brew tap jmhobbs/parrot
brew install terminal-parrot


The image is available on docker hub

docker pull jmhobbs/terminal-parrot
docker run -it --rm jmhobbs/terminal-parrot:latest

You can also build a docker image locally and run it in a container with...

docker build -t partyparrot ./
docker run -it --rm partyparrot (-args)


Hit the escape key to quit.


You can limit your parrots enthusiasm with the -loops flag.


Set the frame delay with the -delay flag (defaults to 75, use 25 for :fastparrot:)


Use -orientation aussie for our friends down under.
