This project is still under early development and really buggy. Think twice if you want to use it.
“Genetic Lifeform and Disk Player” – A small terminal based music visualizing gadget written in python. The name is inspired by Valve’s famous game “Portal”.
To do list

- Print lyrics in your terminal (Mostly synchronous with music)
- Print ASCII art in your terminal (ascii file is needed)
- Can run in Android (With Termux)
- audio-play (If you are using Termux)
Basic Usage (without ascii art)
Clone this repository and put some
*.lrc files in it’s main directory. (Their name should be the same) Then open your terminal, enter this directory and run
./main.sh <your song file name>
If your song’s file name is
sus.mp3 and the lyric file name is
sus.lrc, then your command will be
Play with ascii art
You should first copy-pasta your favorite ascii into a new
*.txt file and put them into the
ascii folder. (or not, if you think the default ones are ok)
Then create a
<song file's name>.ascii file in this repository’s main directory, it should be looking like this:
[00:00.00] [minutes:seconds]<Your ascii file's name> ...
The things in square brackets are timestamps, it’ll decide when it display your specified ascii art in your terminal. Example:
[00:00.00] [00:01.20]aperture [00:02.40]fire [00:08.20]nuclear ...
If every thing went right, you can now play it with ascii art you just specified.
