Some Examples

$ docker run --rm -it wernight/funbox nyancat

$ docker run --rm -it wernight/funbox asciiquarium

$ docker run --rm -it wernight/funbox sh -c "figlet funbox | boxes | toilet --gay -f term"

$ docker run --rm -it wernight/funbox watch -ct -n1 "date '+%D%n%T' | figlet -k | boxes -a c -s 59 -d cat"

$ docker run --rm -it wernight/funbox cvlc --no-audio -V caca /examples/countdown.mp4

You can also watch YouTube videos from the console thanks to the youtube alias (using youtube-dl, vlc and caca-utils) then use cvlc keyboard shortcuts:

$ docker run --rm -it wernight/funbox youtube 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMljuVqqmVU'

Security and mounting volumes

For security, all tools run as non-root user with uid 666. So to access mounted volumes (images or media) do one of the following from within your Docker host:

  • Make them readable by everyone chmod o+rx
  • make them readable by uid/gid 666
  • Run as another user: docker run --rm -it --user $UID wernight/funbox ...

Example:

$ chown 666 my-image.png
$ docker run --rm -it -v $PWD/my-image.png:/my-image.png:ro wernight/funbox metapixel /my-image.png
