ASCII-Pony is a screenshot information tool, but it does not display distribution logo like screenFetch, ponies from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (2010-) instead, which is an animated television show for children.

The script is even named systempony, how fitting to this pony overloading tool. You pony it for screenshot, pretty sure its a verb. As for what it actually mean, I have no clues.

It comes with nice help message and even configuration file for you to set up a pony and information you want to display, so you dont need to use command-line option every time you take a screenshot.

The list of ponies includes, from README, so far, 16 ponies or 21 with variations:

  • Twilight Sparkle (Both as a unicorn and as an alicorn)
  • Rainbow Dash (Both with open and with closed wings)
  • Fluttershy
  • Rarity
  • Pinkie Pie
  • Applejack (Both with and without the hat)
  • Derpy
  • Trixie (Both with and without the hat)
  • Rose
  • Lyra Heartstrings
  • DJ Pon3 (Both with and without shades)
  • Princess Celestia
  • Princess Luna
  • Big McIntosh
  • Princess Cadance
  • Colgate

I have too many ponies for a day.
