It looks so good, and I like the layout a lot I wonder if similar can be done for bluefin maybe a simplified logo for it
Dylan
Dylan•3mo ago
Something like this, but with color maybe?
Dylan
Dylan•3mo ago
I totally used a generator for that by the way

If you use jp2a, it will add color with the --color flag.

The user @nickname Just used this server emoji to react to a post I made, and I think it beats everything I've seen: :bluefin:

Hm. What's the highest rez image we have of that emoji?

I tried to recreate it but instead created a reverse mask, which admittedly looks pretty cool on its own

Translates very poorly to ascii and chafa

I'm gonna use the pen tool to manually cut it out and see if I can't get a good vector image to manipulate.

Looks pretty good.

Let me try with your version

I want to love it, but I feel like we're losing so much of the detail from the feathers

border didn't work well.

For sure The border is an issue with the way the PNG is saving I think I reached the limit of my expertise for tonight. It's definitely progress, though. Thanks Dylan!

@j0rge What do you think of https://github.com/ublue-os/bluefin/pull/1196 ? I think this is a major improvement 🙂

yeah we kind of already ruled out the circle logo in favor of the dinos because each image has a dino specifically for it this is more what we're looking for aesthetically I think
Dylan
Dylan•3mo ago
The problem with the dinos is getting any reasonable level of detail in the terminal is nearly impossible you get maybe 50 pixels of width to work with so things get crunched together
La Forge
La Forge•3mo ago
I use a Street Fighter theme for my devices and a 40k primarch theme for my VMs. Using chafa, I've found that the closer that the original image is to a square, the better it translates, since it uses most of the space.
Dylan
Dylan•3mo ago
maybe we can do a profile shot of a dino like a square crop into the head so it's recongnizable

YEAH BBS STYLE That could work because I have more dinos coming
Dylan
Dylan•3mo ago
honestly, I love the dinos but the current logo and color in fastfetch isn't doing it for me lol
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
so we could just pick a style and do a ton of them and then we just set one during build time so it'll be like on a rotation
La Forge
La Forge•3mo ago
That's a fun idea.
Dylan
Dylan•3mo ago
well if you look at mine, I matched the color for the output to the dino color would look odd if they don't match
La Forge

bluefin1,2,3, etc. Each a bust with a different expression

tbh, I think this looks great.

but let's wait until m2 is around to get consensus since he did the initial work and we're not going to rip it out without investigating options. And he's in bed and so am I, gnight all!

That's fair, and like 90% of his work is still in use

Night! Thanks so much for this project, Jorge. I've been evangelizing it nonstop. It's solved so much for my household alone.

yeah the issue with that circle logo which is the favicon is that it looks like a distro logo everyone has these

They probably all do logos like that because realistically it looks great
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
it's like the same boring pattern, show me something awesome, 40k, dinosaur, a beagle, literally anything other than a logo anyway that's where I stand on the neofetch thing, especially since we're going to have a zoo's worth of raptors over time.

that's super cool I still think the favicon works really well for a fetch script. We can agree to disagree there...

M2 deserves most of the credit, I just played with GIMP and chafa and tweaked the color slightly to reduce eye bleed 🙂 And La Forge came up with the awesome idea of using chafa in the first place couldn't have done it without you guys but man is that great

FYI you can also integrate full-res images into the fetch prompt at least with some fetch configs, using sixels or other terminal image protocols
Dylan
Dylan•3mo ago
Yes, but hand-tuning them looks better and I can't figure out why fastfetch doesn't handle transparency right when just passing in the image

that looks baller! where'd the neofetch symlink go though?
La Forge
La Forge•3mo ago
Which one are you referencing?
j0rge
j0rge•3mo ago
the neofetch command is gone, it was symlinked to fastfetch before
La Forge
La Forge•3mo ago
I found it in
/etc/profile.d/bluefin-fastfetch.sh
/etc/profile.d/bluefin-fastfetch.sh
Dylan
Dylan•2mo ago
neofetch symlink to fastfetch is bad UX. users shouldn't run one fetchscript and get another entirely
j0rge
j0rge•2mo ago
no one knows what fastfetch is it's a convenience symlink, we're doing that in lots of places neofetch is unmaintained, no one is going to say "but I wanted real neofetch" our ls isn't going to be ls our cd isn't going to be cd and eventually we're swapping out all the coreutils
Dylan
Dylan•2mo ago
swapping ls and cd will probably break lots of shell scripts and muscle memory I suppose eza might be okay, but I worry it could cause unintended side effects
Dylan
Dylan•2mo ago
Anyways, damn this looks good now. I think it has a small bug though -- it only shows the one dino even if I run it a bunch of times
No description
Dylan
Dylan•2mo ago
not a big deal you know what? Actually, using eza for ls is awesome. Maybe I'll make a PR for that
