BlingText and Banner

Ajax, AjaxPatterns

As foretweeted last week, I created a little Ajax app called BlingText.

As you can see, it takes a message and provides some ASCII renderings. In particular, it includes a port of the old UNIX/C Banner utility.

If I do more work on it, the main improvements will be:

  • Options. Let the user specify, for each transformation, parameters such as the fill character (“*”) and amount of spacing.
  • Better OO (internal change). Each of the transformations is at present a terse strategy object, which is good. However, there’s no inheritance going on, so it could be better.
