A tiny library and application for animating text in the terminal.
Compatible with EVERYTHING!
Snailshell works with any type which implements
Display, so literally everything that you would normally use with
format!() just works!
This includes colored text from other libraries such as Crossterm.
use snailshell::*; // It's dead simple. snailprint("hello, friend :)");
Custom Fixed Duration
snailprint_d("This whole message will print in half a second regardless of the size.", 0.5);
// This is optional. Default fps is 60. // All subsequent snailprint functions will use this fps. set_snail_fps(30);
🐌 🖥️ Snailshell Standalone:
You can also use snailshell from the command line.
Useful for making shell scripts and videos!
cargo install snailshell
snailshell [OPTIONS] <TEXT> ARGS: <TEXT> Text you want to animate OPTIONS: -d, --duration <DURATION> How long the text should animate for -f, --fps <FPS> Refresh rate of animation -h, --help Print help information -s, --speed <SPEED> Constant speed of chars per second to render. Conflicts with duration
snailshell "text you want to animate"
Animates the contents of textfile over 2 seconds:
cat textfile | snailshell -d 2.0
If you just run 'snailshell' without any any arguments, it will expect text to be piped into it and won't respond to newlines. Just press Ctrl-C.
