glitchlock: a glitch art themed randomized lockscreen. powered by i3lock-color.
(note, the lock screen is **NOT** animated. this gif is just a few examples of it's random output)

* [how it works](#how-it-works)
i do [glitch art](https://x-ero.tumblr.com) for fun. i was messing around w/ one of my shell scripts and thought: this would make a cool lockscreen! after a bit of research and refactoring here we are.
### how it works
the script takes a screenshot, then datamoshes it. optionally overlays an image (one for each display) then uses that image as the background for the lockscreen.
this lockscreen has the potential for information leakage, since it uses a screenshot of your active screen. i made this for fun and personal use, please take care and weigh your opsec and personal threat model before deciding to use this.
a workaround i like is setting up your screen very nicely w/o any secret info in it and taking a screenshot. then replace line #9 in the script (`scrot /tmp/lock.png`) with a command to move your pre-setup screenshot into place (e.g. `cp ~/lib/img/lock.png /tmp/lock.png`) then let the script randomly glitch that image out everytime.
* the "ricing" fork of the lockscreen application
* the premiere nix screen shot tool
* image manipulation toolkit
if you're using arch they can all be installed from the community and aur repos:
`yaourt -S i3lock-color-git scrot imagemagick`
if called alone, the script will take a screenshot and glitch it. but you can optionally pass an environment variable named `GLITCHICON` to the app and it will center that image on each display and overlay it on the glitched image.
