Retropixels online image converter

Hi, I put the first version online of a web interface to my tool retropixels: https://www.micheldebree.nl/retropixels

I did not create a release because it has no binaries, and I plan to continuously update the tool. So I thought I'd post it here and see if I get any feedback/bugs/suggestions.

Seems to work pretty well. Would it be possible to make it create workstages too? ;)

Let me ask a remotely connected question if I may: What does it mean to "wire a graphics"? I guess it means converting, but why "wire"?

I've always thought that the term was coined when people used to send converted pics from PC to C-64 over a parport->userport cable contraption. (Or some null-modem kind of thing, ofc.)

Good to hear people are using retropixels :)

I am having some trouble maintaining the web version, and reworking to solve that is not very high on my priority list I'm afraid. Development on the command line version is quicker, so I could add the custom ordered dither pattern to that.

You're probably right. I must have this nostalgic idea about the whole conversion / wiring thing.

NoiseEHC: very good question!
I simply assumed "wired" was related to the term "wireframe". Like a relic of an old-fashioned term for transcoding analog information to the digital realm. Which in my mind seemed perfectly valid because converting from the pc to the c64 world is almost an information phase transition like A/D.
Surely, it is digital to digital, but "you don't simply convert to c64". At least until recently. :-D

That's unfortunate. The web version with preview is very nice (not to say crucial) for me as a "non-graphician" that doesn't really know what he's doing :-)

Anyway: thanks for your tool so far and keep up the good work!
