textual-paint (via) Isaiah Odhner built a full working clone of MS Paint that runs entirely in the terminal, using Textual and Python. It’s worth trying this out to get a feel for quite how much you can get done with a CLI app these days—“pipx install textual-paint” worked for me. # 25th July 2023, 2:32 pm

textual-mandelbrot (via) I love this: run “pipx install textual-mandelbrot” and then “mandelexp” to get an interactive Mandelbrot fractal exploration interface right there in your terminal, built on top of Textual. The code for this is only 250 lines of Python and delightfully easy to follow. # 1st April 2023, 7:23 pm
