Curses-based program for the creation and editing of ASCII art
Aewan is a multi-layered ascii-art/animation editor that produces both stand-alone cat-able art files and an easy-to-parse format for integration in your terminal applications.
Aewan is a curses-based program that allows for the creation and editing of ascii art. The user is able to move the cursor around the screen by means of the arrow keys and ‘paint’ characters by pressing the corresponding keys. There are dialog boxes that allow the user to choose foreground and background colors, as well as bold and blink attributes. The user may also select rectangular areas of the canvas in order to move, copy and paste them. Aewan also supports ‘intelligent’ horizontal and vertical flipping e.g. converts ‘' to ‘/’, etc.
