AnsiArt aia example

ANSI art is a computer art form that was widely used at one time on bulletin board systems. It is similar to ASCII art, but constructed from a larger set of 256 letters, numbers, and symbols — all codes found in IBM code page 437, often referred to as extended ASCII and used in MS-DOS and Unix[1] environments. ANSI art also contains special ANSI escape sequences that color text with the 16 foreground and 8 background colours offered by ANSI.SYS, an MS-DOS device driver loosely based upon the ANSI X3.64 standard for text terminals. Some ANSI artists take advantage of the cursor control sequences within ANSI X3.64 in order to create animations, commonly referred to as ANSImations . ANSI art and text files which incorporate ANSI codes carry the de facto .ANS file extension.

I have developed a simple art example that transforms an image into AnsiArt.
It was not possible to develop an extension because the webview does not support the jquery terminal.
So I used a simple webviewer and saved the project as aia file.

if you want use text for ansi use the method “BuildTextorEmoji” from my extension AsciArt
