About this template

AsciiArtify: Convert images into ascii art.

Introduction to the AsciiArtify Template

Welcome to the AsciiArtify template guide. This template allows you to convert images into ASCII art using a simple web interface. The application is built with Flask and can be easily deployed on the Lazy platform. With this template, you won't need to worry about setting up environments or handling deployments, as Lazy takes care of all that for you.

Getting Started

To begin using this template, click on "Start with this Template" in the Lazy Builder interface. This will pre-populate the code in the Lazy Builder, so you won't need to copy or paste any code manually.

Test: Deploying the App

Once you have started with the template, press the "Test" button to begin the deployment of your app. The Lazy CLI will handle the deployment process, and you will not be prompted for any user input at this stage.

Using the AsciiArtify App

After deployment, Lazy will provide you with a dedicated server link. Use this link to access the web interface where you can upload images to be converted into ASCII art. The interface is straightforward:

  • Visit the provided server link.
  • You will see a form where you can upload an image file.
  • Select an image file from your computer (the allowed formats are PNG, JPG, JPEG, and GIF).
  • Click the submit button to upload the image and see the ASCII art representation.

The ASCII art will be displayed directly on the web page after the image is processed.

Integrating the App

If you wish to integrate the ASCII art generation functionality into another service or frontend, you may need to consider the following:

  • Use the server link provided by Lazy as the endpoint for image uploads.
  • Ensure that any external tool you integrate with can send POST requests to the server link with the image data.

For example, if you're integrating with a third-party service that supports webhooks or HTTP requests, you would set up a new webhook or request that targets the "/upload" route of your deployed AsciiArtify app.

Remember, this template is designed to work seamlessly on the Lazy platform, so you can focus on building and integrating your app without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.

If you encounter any issues or have questions about using the template, refer to the documentation provided by Lazy or reach out to their customer support for assistance.
