PyPlaceholder

When mocking up layouts, I want to ensure that the HTML I'm building wraps real images in the correct aspect ratios. I also want to be able to fiddle with the sizes without getting distracted by squashed/stretched faces. I'd like something akin to a visual "Lorem ipsum...", that says "Hey! An image is going to go here! At some point!" Importantly for some future work, I want these images to be autogenerated.

So, PyPlaceholder. Using PyPNG as a base, it generates s very simple image that you can stick into a layout to hold the place of images to come.

Usage: placeholders.py [options]

  --version             show program's version number and exit
