Linux / Unix Desktop Fun: Christmas Tree For Your Terminal

Originally published at:

Let us create Linux or Unix console Christmas tree just for fun and profit. First, you need to install a Perl module called Acme::POE::Tree. It is an animated Christmas tree module. I’ve tested this on Linux, OS X and Unix-like system.

I didn’t really like the Acme::POE::Tree so I decided to reimplement it in Bash to be more portable, easier to install and simpler (200 SLOC less). You may check its git repository and run it without installation

wget -O - | bash

I wish you to enjoy it and merry christmas
