If simply popping into the command line isn’t enough to make you feel like a ‘90s hacker, GitHub user bartobri created a silly decrypting text effect pulledfrom the movie Sneakers.
Once you install the tools, you can manually run any command you want through the decryption effect. You can also just type
sneakersinto the Terminal for an exact reproduction of the movie scene. Silly? Sure, but we could all use a cool decryption animation in Terminal every once in a while. You’ll find install guides for a variety of different operating systems over on GitHub.
No More Secrets
“No More Secrets” is the name I’ve lovingly given to the infamous “decrypting text” effect seen on screen in the 1992 hacker movie Sneakers. If you are unfamiliar with the effect, it can be seen at 0:35 in this youtube video.
This project provides tools to recreate this effect in your projects.
