betterlockscreen - 🍀 sweet looking lockscreen for linux system - i3lock

  •        560

Most of i3lock script out there converts your defined image to add blur, glitch or dim effect to image and it feels so slow and btw who needs dynamic lock background, its not like I change lockscreen background every 5 minutes. I wanted something that was fast and still should have all the effects I want for lockscreen background. Note: Make sure all dependencies are satisfied beforehand.

pixterm - Draw images in your ANSI terminal with true color

  •    Go

PIXterm shows images directly in your terminal, recreating the pixels through a combination of ANSI character background color and the unicode lower half block element. If image has transparency, an optional matte color can be used for background. Also, you can specify a dithering mode; in which case, the image is rendered using block elements with different shades, or using standard ASCII characters in the same way. In dithering mode, the matte color is used to fill the background of the blocks or characters. The conversion process runs fast because it is parallelized in all CPUs.

color-extractor - Extract colors from an image like a human would do.

  •    PHP

Extract colors from an image like a human would do.By default any pixel with alpha value greater than zero will be discarded. This is because transparent colors are not perceived as is. For example fully transparent black would be seen white on a white background. So if you want to take transparency into account when building a palette you have to specify this background color. You can do this with the second argument of Palette constructors. Its default value is null, meaning a color won't be added to the palette if its alpha component exists and is greater than zero.

geo_pattern - Create beautiful generative geometric background images from a string.

  •    Ruby

Generate beautiful tiling SVG patterns from a string. The string is converted into a SHA and a color and pattern are determined based on the values in the hash. The color is determined by shifting the hue and saturation from a default (or passed in) base color. One of 16 patterns is used (or you can specify one) and the sizing of the pattern elements is also determined by the hash values. You can use the generated pattern as the background-image for a container. Using the base64 representation of the pattern still results in SVG rendering, so it looks great on retina displays.

scss-blend-modes - Using standard color blending functions in SASS.

  •    CSS

CSS doesn't natively support color blending the way that Photoshop does. This library attempts to fake that by allowing you to blend a foreground color with a background color in order to approximate color blending. This is not a dynamic blend; you can't use this to blend a color with an image. This was originally intended for use with the Compass Photoshop Drop Shadow Plugin but it proved impractical to integrate. Adobe has been working on a W3C spec to add blend modes to CSS3. However, CSS blend modes have extremely limited support in browsers, as of September 2013. This library is not a polyfill for those blend modes. A polyfill for dynamic blend modes will require something like SVG and JavaScript and would likely be quite complicated (or impossible).

Sketch-Color-Contrast-Analyser - A Sketch plugin that calculates the color contrast of two selected layers and evaluates it against the WCAG2


A Sketch plugin that calculates the color contrast of two layers and evaluates it against the WCAG. If only a single layer is selected, than it will calculate with its artboard background color. The test may pass AAA, AA or fail because of a lack of contrast. And even when you do not need to meet those requirements, you can get a feeling for the contrast when you get used to the values. This might help you design accessible content. Color contrast of 7.0:1 or 4.5:1 for large text.
