Colour ASCII-art library

libcaca is a graphics library that outputs text instead of pixels, so that it can work on older video cards or text terminals. It supports Unicode, 2048 colors, dithering of color images, and advanced text canvas operations.


Install the latest version of libcaca as follows:

guix install libcaca

Or install a particular version:

guix install libcaca@0.99.beta19

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
