Termsaver - A simple text-based terminal screensaver
termsaver [SCREEN] [OPTIONS]
Termsaver is a simple alternative for simulating command-line based screensavers right on the terminal, in text-based format. To start the screensaver, execute Termsaver command with proper options as described in detail below, and to close it, just use the standard Ctrl+C to interrupt it (or close the terminal window if you are on a desktop environment and no longer need it).
The Termsaver application, to work properly, requires a screen as argument, which represents the name of the screensaver to be loaded. Each screen, in turn, will have its own set of optional arguments, documented in its help option. Here follows a list of currently available screens (note that this information might become outdated if updates are not fully documented here, so always rely on the help option to display all screens available): quotes4all displays recent quotes from quotes4all.net asciiartfarts displays ascii images from asciiartfarts.com (NSFW) rssfeed displays rss feed information clock displays a digital clock on screen randtxt displays word in random places on screen rfc randomly displays RFC contents programmer displays source code in typing animation urlfetcher displays url contents with typing animation jokes4all displays recent jokes from jokes4all.net (NSFW) matrix displays a matrix movie alike screensaver sysmon displays a graphic of CPU/MEM usage over time Refer to help option for additional information for each screen usage and example.
This program follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. -h, --help Displays this help message -v, --verbose Displays python exception errors (for debugging)
