screenFetch - The Bash Screenshot Information Tool
This handy Bash script can be used to generate one of those
nifty terminal theme information + ASCII distribution logos you
see in everyone's screenshots nowadays. It will auto-detect your
distribution and display an ASCII version of that distribution's
logo and some valuable information to the right. There are options
to specify no ASCII art, colors, taking a screenshot upon displaying
info, and even customizing the screenshot command!
This script is very easy to add to and can easily be extended.

- -o 'OPTIONS'
Allows for setting script variables on the
command line. Must be in the following format:
- -d '+var;-var;var'
Allows for setting what information is displayed on the command line. You can
add displays with +var,var. You can delete displays with -var,var. Setting
without + or - will set display to that explicit combination. Add and delete
statements may be used in conjunction by placing a ; between them as so:
Do not display ASCII distribution logo.
Display ASCII distribution logo only.
Strip all color from output.
Wrap long lines.
Truncate output based on terminal width (Experimental!).
Output in portrait mode, with logo above info.
- -s [-u IMGHOST]
Using this flag tells the script that you want it
to take a screenshot. Use the -u flag if you would like
to upload the screenshots to one of the pre-configured
locations. These include: teknik, imgur, mediacrush and hmp.
- -c string
You may change the outputted colors with -c. The format is
as follows: [0-9][0-9],[0-9][0-9]. The first argument controls the
ASCII logo colors and the label colors. The second argument
controls the colors of the information found. One argument may be
used without the other.
- -a 'PATH'
You can specify a custom ASCII art by passing the path to a Bash script,
defining startline and fulloutput variables, and optionally
labelcolor and textcolor. See the asciiText function
in the source code for more informations on the variables format.

Here you can specify a custom screenshot command for
the script to execute. Surrounding quotes are required.
- -D 'DISTRO'
Here you can specify your distribution for the script
to use. Surrounding quotes are required.

Here you can specify the distribution art that you want
displayed. This is for when you want your distro
detected but want to display a different logo.
