Went into the University for the first time

I went into the university for the first time today. It is less than a kilometer from the apartment. I had to go there to finalize certain documents regarding my accomodation. I arrived at the university during the lunch time and hence I had to wait for a couple of hours for the office staffs to return. During the time, I roamed around the campus.

Creating awesome text banners in Linux Terminal

In several opensource projects that we see around in the web, certain developers prefer to add banners like the following at the top of the source code. These do look cool, but I have often wondered why anyone would waste so much time making things like these.

As I have been surfing around the web, I happened to see Linux Terminal apps that generates these for you. I have used them to generate such banners for the BuddyGo.

Figlet:

To install Figlet, use the following command (if you have apt-get):
sudo apt-get install figlet

Toilet

To install Toilet, type the following in your linux command line:
sudo apt-get install toilet

Banner:

To install Banner, type the following in your linux command line:

sudo apt-get install sysvbanner


Now, you can also contribute to the Open Source community in style. Make contributions on GitHub, BitBucket, or whichever platform you are using.
