Jmatrix project generates the Matrix the movie eye candy thingy.
jmatrix is a cute little non-ncurses green letter matrix-the-movie eye candy thingy.
It has about 20 things that you can configure to create your own matrix experience.
It is not just like the movie, though it could be fooled into being that way.
This project was inspired by Cmatrix (which you can also locate on freashmeat). My computer was just plain too slow to run the ncurses implementation of the matrix green letter thing.
Now... I went to see the movie again, and mine isn't very movie-correct. Neither is Cmatrix. They are both cool though.
In the movie, the letters don't scroll anywhere. They get poped in after a white & goes by... then they fade out. Dull eh?
Jmatrix has some pull_down() effects... and the white heads have a creap_back() method that creates some interesting effects.
Jmatrix is also very configurable. You can change almost everything.
