An extension for Brackets to generate a cow saying very profound and silly things.

How to Install

  1. Select Brackets > File > Extension Manager...
  2. Search for this extension.
  3. Click on the Install button.

How to Use Cowsay

Type cowsay and press the Tab key. Enter your text into the dialog box and click OK.

You can also add options to the cowsay command with an underscore character followed by the option name. For example: cowsay_help. Multiple options can also be chained together. For example, typing cowsay_fortune_e@@_TVV and then pressing the Tab key will give you a paranoid, vampiric cow saying a very profound and silly thing. Using an unrecognized option will insert an error message into the document. Using more than one underscore character in a row (e.g. cowsay_fortune__TU) will insert an error message into the document.

Note: Options to the far right of the chain always have the highest priority. If two options in the chain conflict with each other, the option on the right will have precedence. For example, the command cowsay_p_t will draw a tired cow and the command cowsay_t_p will draw a paranoid cow.

List of Current Options

_e[text]: Define how to draw the cow's eyes. [text] can be zero, one, or two characters to represent the cow's eyes. For example, _e>< will draw the eyes shut tightly, _eOo will draw uneven eyes, _e@ will draw a cyclops cow, and _e will draw a cow with no eyes at all. All characters are valid except whitespace and the underscore. If you want those characters you will have to tweak your cow by hand.

_T[text]: Define how to draw the cow's tongue. [text] can be zero, one, or two characters to represent the cow's tongue. For example, _TVV will draw the a vampire cow, _TW is a cow with a forked tongue, and _T will draw a cow with no tongue at all. All characters are valid except whitespace and the underscore. If you want those characters you will have to tweak your cow by hand.

_b: Draws a Borg cow.

_d: Draws a dead cow.

_g: Draws a greedy cow.

_p: Draws a paranoid cow.

_s: Draws a stoned cow.

_t: Draws a tired cow.

_w: Draws a wired cow.

_y: Draws a young cow.

_think: Displays a cow thinking instead of speaking.

_fortune: Displays a cow saying a very profound and silly thing.

_html: Surrounds the cow in a pair of state-of-the-art, HTML5 compliant, Web Standards conformant <pre> </pre> tags. This prevents the browser from turning your cow into a pile of ASCII ground beef.

_?, _help: Displays help for the Cowsay extension. If this option is used, you will not be able to enter any text and no cow will be generated. All other options will be ignored.

Roadmap

  • Add word wrap option
  • Option to load different animals
