why date when you can date | toilet | lolcat

why ~command~  when you can ~command | jazzed up | piped to more commands~  ?

e.g.:

why

date

when you can

date | toilet -t -f small | lolcat

----------------------------------

got any other examples?  smile

as silly/fun/frivolous or serious/helpful as you like. 
& debate if you like to which side leans " | toilet | lolcat" (or any other examples).  n_n


If ignorance is bliss, give me agony.

toilet has its own --rainbow filter, but lolcat is definitely nicer.

How about

cmatrix | lolcat

though?

Or

asciiquarium | lolcat

(ooh, that's nice!)

BTW, the original lolcat seems to be a ruby script, but there's a C implementation that is noticeably faster! I wonder which one Debian uses?

Re: why date when you can date | toilet | lolcat

Okay, that was worth the downloads of toilet, lolcat and cmatrix:) couldn't find the asciiquarium. Lol. I have a feeling I'm going to binge on these for a while:)  Surely I can find some neat places to use some of this!

Edit*  @ohnonot, the screenshot!  Awesome:) thanks for that and the other examples!

Re: why date when you can date | toilet | lolcat

Was messing with this a bit more:)

To have a scrolling marquee:

date | figlet -ksW | lolcat -F 0.2 -a -d 3 -s 30

Slow lines without lolcat using awk:

man lxterminal | awk '{system("sleep .4");print}' | figlet -f small

(somehow I see this as useful if I can figure out why:)

Then I found the program 'pv' which does the same:

cat Cool | pv --quiet --line-mode --rate-limit 3 | figlet -f small -c

Hard to beat the lolcat though:)
