Probably came up with it in a fever dream, to be honest
What it does
It takes a video file and plays it in emoji form in the VSCode console.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
The main challenge I ran into was forcing Node.js to run as synchronously as possible. This involved an awful combination of promisifying my main loop and making every single processing function synchronous, even if they weren't really supposed to be.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
That I actually managed to get it to work.
What I learned
What Node.js really isn't supposed to be used for.
What's next for VidiMoji
I want to combine it with Discord.js, because I designed it so that if the resolution is 15x8, you can guarantee that every frame fits inside a Discord message, so you can edit a message up to 5 times per second and play a video in Discord. This was the original plan, but it's 4:30am and I want to go to sleep, so I'm definitely not going to be able to finish it by morning.
