Text to Image AI

Posted by ALB42 on 27. Juni 20232 Comments

Of course it’s perfectly possible to use any text 2 image webpages like getimg.ai with AmiFox on Amiga. But of course a better way is to make a specialized app for it using hugging face with stable diffusion.

It also contains Magic prompt which can produce more sophisticated prompts or even a complete random prompt. Gives really nice pictures sometimes.

Chatting on Amiga with Large language models

Posted by ALB42 on 25. Juni 2023No Comments

If you want to chat with large language models e.g. with ChatGPT or some Open Source models you can just use your Amiga with AmiFox. for Example on https://chat.lmsys.org/ you can test out multiple models and even let them battle against each other.

But of course also other pages like huggingface can be used, choose what even your like. Now available on your Amiga with AmiFox.

AmiFox AREXX and parameter

Posted by ALB42 on 15. April 2023No Comments

Introducing AREXX commands for AmiFox, so you can send a URL to AmiFox to view. If the Browser is idle it will directly start to load the new URL. If still loading another URL it will remember the URL and start it after the current one is finished loading, maybe later also stop the current task, atm its easier that way.

Wit this new AREXX command of course one can use an AREXX script but even better you can use programs like openurl to directly send urls to your favourite Web-browser… or AmiFox 😀

AmiFox-Server for RasPi

Posted by ALB42 on 1. April 2023No Comments

To check if the releases of AmiFox Server work I tried that on a RasPi, fresh install, the only thing you need to install is the Chromium-browser and start the WRP.
sudo apt install chromium-browser
wget https://github.com/alb42/wrp/releases/download/v0.3/wrp-arm-linux
chmod a+x wrp-arm-linux
./wrp-arm-linux

AmiFox-Server for everyone

Posted by ALB42 on 1. April 2023No Comments

The AmiFox Server can already be used via docker container with everything you need installed, but this works atm only for x64 linux with docker installed. But the original WRP was already prepared to cross compile to multiple targets, so I made a release with all the platforms available which includes, Windows, Mac or Linux on a RasPi, there you can start the apps directly. You might need some additional packages though, for example a current Google Chrome / Chromium Browser browser must be installed.

First sunny day

Posted by ALB42 on 18. März 2023No Comments

Today is the first sunny and warm day, so I took my bicycle out an drove my usual round course. Curious how much his winter and other stuff in the last month affected my fitness status. And to be honest I’m quite suprised it’s not that bad, today my usual 20 km short round course, average speed 27 km/h… thats not bad at all, my record for that course is around 30 km/h, so 27 is rather good.

AmiFox and URL Links

Posted by ALB42 on 18. März 2023No Comments

I was browsing around in the old sources of WRP, how it was in older Releases, and I found an interesting point, in the beginning they tried the same as me. To gather all the links on the page with their position and sent it back as map to the client. So they gave me a handy example source how to achieve that with the headless chrome. so I build a routine which takes coordinates and sends back the URL if the coordinates are on a link. And I put that into AmiFox. But for that of course I need a Version detection because older versions or the official WRP can’t do that.

Now this works rather nicely, still thinking if I should do that always and out in the original answer html, but then it will be huge for most webpages. Atm I like this more dynamic way more, I also cache them in AmiFox so if it knows already once the position it will not ask again for these positions.

To use that besides the little text in the status bar I added a Context menu with „Download Link“ and that it no looks that empty also a „save image“ function, which just copies the temp image to an other location. Little demonstration, as usual.
