Call for testing: make8bitart


This is one of the first things I tried to snap a long time ago. But now, with @davidcalle’s tutorial to make a snap from a website using electron, it looks a lot nicer than before.

I hope many people will enjoy it :slight_smile: But for that, we need first to check that it works as expected. Please, help me testing it:

sudo snap install make8bitart --beta

Here is the repo:

pura vida


I downloaded the snap, @elopio

Then I couldn’t import anything to the program, in terms of a png.

But as I have a large screen, so I put my browser and the program side-by-side and started doodle-ing.

So here is the pixabay image that my friend told me to have a look at.

And so I tried to make a copy.

And here is the result.

Note that this is under creative commons v3 license.

Also I could not right-click the web-link, to copy it.

I cannot sign into github as I do not have access to my password - so @elopio

you’ll have to file a bug for the fact the web-link is not right clickable.

Thank-you for the first web-integrated snap that I could actually use.

It kinda reminds me of a Declan O’Rourke song.

Thanks for the report.

You are not supposed to import pngs, what you can import are pxon files.

Some links don’t work, and that’s weird, because some others do work. I can’t find the difference.

And about enabling right click on links, looking at this electron module, it seems it is something we should add. @davidcalle, do you think the tutorial should mention something about context menu, or maybe even include this module?


@elopio had a quick look, but it seems they closed this issue (for windows).

also - you didn’t click on any of my Links :frowning:
