Line Art

The amazing results that the model has produced has a secret sauce to it. The initial model couldn't create the sort of output I was expecting, it mostly struggled with recognizing facial features. Even though (https://github.com/yiranran/APDrawingGAN) produced great results it had limitations like (frontal face photo similar to ID photo, preferably with clear face features, no glasses and no long fringe.) I wanted to break-in and produce results that could recognize any pose. Achieving proper lines around the face, eyes, lips and nose depends on the data you give the model. APDrawing dataset alone was not enough so I had to combine selected photos from Anime sketch colorization pair dataset. The combined dataset helped the model to learn the lines better.

The movie poster was created using ArtLine in no time , it's not as good as it should be but I'm not an artist.

Technical Details

Self-Attention (https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.08318). Generator is pretrained UNET with spectral normalization and self-attention. Something that I got from Jason Antic's DeOldify(https://github.com/jantic/DeOldify), this made a huge difference, all of a sudden I started getting proper details around the facial features.

Progressive Resizing (https://arxiv.org/abs/1710.10196),(https://arxiv.org/pdf/1707.02921.pdf). Progressive resizing takes this idea of gradually increasing the image size, In this project the image size were gradually increased and learning rates were adjusted. Thanks to fast.ai for intrdoucing me to Progressive resizing, this helps the model to generalise better as it sees many more different images.

Generator Loss : Perceptual Loss/Feature Loss based on VGG16. (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1603.08155.pdf).

Surprise!! No critic,No GAN. GAN did not make much of a difference so I was happy with No GAN.

The mission was to create something that converts any personal photo into a line art. The initial efforts have helped to recognize lines, but still the model has to improve a lot with shadows and clothes. All my efforts are to improve the model and make line art a click away.

Dataset

APDrawing dataset

Anime sketch colorization pair dataset

APDrawing data set consits of mostly close-up portraits so the model would struggle to recogonize cloths,hands etc. For this purpose selected images from Anime sketch colorization pair were used.

Going Forward

I hope I was clear, going forward would like to improve the model further as it still struggles with random backgrounds(I'm creating a custom dataset to address this issue). Cartoonizing the image was never part of the project, but somehow it came up and it did okay!! Still lots to improve. Ill release the cartoonize model when it looks impressive enough to show off.

I will be constantly upgrading the project for the foreseeable future.

Getting Started Yourself

The easiest way to get started is to simply try out on Colab: https://colab.research.google.com/github/vijishmadhavan/Light-Up/blob/master/ArtLine(Try_it_on_Colab).ipynb

Installation Details

This project is built around the wonderful Fast.AI library.

  • fastai==1.0.61 (and its dependencies). Please dont install the higher versions
  • PyTorch 1.6.0 Please don't install the higher versions

Limitations

Getting great output depends on Lighting, Backgrounds,Shadows and the quality of photos. You'll mostly get good results in the first go but there are chances for issues as well. The model is not there yet, it still needs to be tweaked to reach out to all the consumers. It might be useful for "AI Artisits/ Artists who can bring changes to the final output.

The model confuses shadows with hair, something that I'm trying to solve.

It does bad with low quality images(below 500px).

I'm not a coder, bear with me for the bad code and documentation. Will make sure that I improve with upcoming updates.

What is Python?

Python is a high-level object-oriented programming language developed by Guido van Rossum in 1989 and was first released in 1991. Python is often called batteries included language due to its comprehensive standard library. A fun fact about Python is that The name Python was taken from the popular BBC comedy show of that time, "Monty Python's Flying Circus." Python is widely used in data analytics, machine learning, and web development these days. Python allows you to write programs in fewer lines of code than most programming languages. Python as a programming language is growing rapidly. It's the right time to get trained in Python.

Following are the standard or built-in data types of Python: 
1. Numeric data types
2. Text data type
3. Sequence data type
4. Mapping data type
5. Set data type
6. Boolean data type
7. Binary data type

How to add robots.txt to Next.js Application

#next  #JavaScript #coding #programming 

What Is A Robot.Txt File?

Webmasters build robots.txt files to instruct web robots (typically search engine robots) on how to crawl pages on their domain. The robots.txt file is part of the robots exclusion protocol (REP), which is a collection of online rules that regulate how robots navigate the web, access and index content, and serve it to humans. The REP also includes meta robots directives and page-, subdirectory-, or site-wide instructions for how search engines should understand links (such as "follow" or "nofollow").

Including a robots.txt file in your Next.js application.
Previously, you had to build a server.js file as well as a new path pointing to the robots.txt file. But not in the latest edition! You can store your robots.txt file in the public directory in the most recent version of Next.JS. The public directory is meant to take the place of the static directory.

At the root domain level, everything in the public directory will be viewable. As a result, the URL for the robots.txt file would be /robots.txt rather than /public/robots.txt.

If you want to learn more about how to add a robot.txt file in next.js  then visit our blog for a step-by-step explanation.

What Is The Difference Between Synchronous Vs Asynchronous In Node.js

#node #javascript #coding #programming 

Synchronous and asynchronous are two different programming paradigms that can be used to write code in Node.js. In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at the differences between synchronous and asynchronous code, and when it's best to use each approach.

What is Asynchronous?
Every instruction in the code executes sequentially after waiting for its predecessor to do so, as we saw in the synchronous code example. Because of the nature of synchronous programming, crucial instructions might occasionally get delayed by some earlier instructions, which delays the user interface. Asynchronous code execution enables the quick execution of subsequent instructions and avoids blocking the flow of execution due to earlier instructions.

What is Synchronous?
Because synchronous code stops the application until all the resources are accessible, it is often known as "blocking."
Synchronous execution usually uses to code executing in sequence and the program is executed line by line, one line at a time. When a function is called, the program execution waits until that function returns before continuing to the next line of code.

C4iOS: Code, Creatively

C4iOS

Code, Creatively.

C4 is an open-source creative coding framework that harnesses the power of native iOS programming with a simplified API that gets you working with media right away. Build artworks, design interfaces and explore new possibilities working with media and interaction.

Built on top of Swift, C4 puts the power of UIKit and Core Animation at your disposal, allowing you to create inventive digital interactions with far less time and effort. Plus, you get all the interactivity, fun and expressiveness of Swift. Your apps will run lightning-fast.

The API of C4 is simple and streamlined allowing beginners to get into programming very easily. For seasoned developers, C4 can be dropped into any existing project with as little effort as linking any other native framework. With C4, you’ll save a ton of time when working with interactions, animation and media.

Expressive

C4 brings your ideas to life by allowing you to focus on experimenting, designing, visualizing and building rather than on learning low-level technologies. Objects are consistent and intuitive—they all essentially work the same way. C4's language has been designed to be as simple and expressive as possible.

For example, C4 compresses the access of properties:

let m = movie.width

Instead of this:

let m = movie.frame.size.width

Animating both view and property changes in C4 is much cleaner, and looks like this:

ViewAnimation(duration: 0.5) {
  shape.center = self.canvas.center
  shape.lineWidth = 5
}.animate()

Whereas using UIKit + Core Animation you'd have to do something like this:

UIView.animate(withDuration: 0.5) {
    v.center = self.view.center
}

CATransaction.begin()
CATransaction.setValue(0.5, forKey: kCATransactionAnimationDuration)
if let shapeLayer = v.layer as? CAShapeLayer {
    shapeLayer.lineWidth = 5
}
CATransaction.commit()

C4 takes advantage of all of Swift’s modernity: closures, tuples, generics, interaction, structs, error handling. And, YES, you can even do this:

let bananaName = "Jimmy".banana

Check the Swift Overview for more.

Easy To Learn

Through both its simplified API and consistent objects, C4 is incredibly easy to learn compared to the frameworks it’s built upon: UIKit, Core Animation, etc. C4’s language has been designed to make it easy for both novice and experienced programmers to pick up and use right away.

Well Supported

The C4 team has always been highly committed to publishing excellent documentation, examples and tutorials for learning how to program with C4.

The current release of C4 also includes a full end-to-end tutorial that will walk you through the design, creation and publication of a full-blown app: COSMOS

Get COSMOS from the App Store

Build COSMOS from start to finish

We’re currently converting over 200 code examples and 30 tutorials to C4's new modern syntax. These examples and tutorials (coming soon) guide new users through core concepts and provide seasoned developers with the reference they need to keep up the pace.

Powerful

Originally based on Objective-C, C4 now takes entire advantage of the Swift programming language — which itself was built to be fast and powerful. Where Swift has been tuned to make intuitive, natural coding perform best, the guts of each component in C4 — every class, every method and every structure –  make that performance sing.

Through C4 you are able to work with media, animations and interactions in a way that dissolves the differences between the many frameworks you need to create beautiful user experiences. It seamlessly combines many important components of UIKit, Core Animation, Core Graphics, AVFoundation and QuartzCore.

Multipurpose

C4 is built for anyone who wants to build beautiful user experiences for iOS and has been designed to reach an incredibly broad set of possible uses. This flexibility is one of the most important aspects of C4, demonstrating its strength across a variety of different use cases and disciplines.

C4 has been used for:

  • Prototyping
  • Mobile Applications
  • Data Visualization
  • Interactive Artworks
  • Computational Design Education
  • Communication Design
  • Print Design

Simplicity

Simplicity is a major accomplishment for C4. Across the board, C4 is simple to learn, to use, to read and to adopt. C4 reduces the amount of code you need to the most powerful essentials.

Take movies, for example. Instead of needing to AVQueuePlayer, AVPlayerItem, navigating asset tracks and learning how to load files through NSBundle, you only have to create a movie from its file name and add it to the canvas:

func setup() {
  let movie = Movie("halo.mp4")
  canvas.add(movie)
  movie?.play()
}

Using UIKit + AVFoundation, you'd have to construct the movie object from scratch like this:

func viewDidLoad() {
  guard let url = Bundle.main.url(forResource: "halo.mp4", withExtension: nil) else {
      fatalError("File not found")
  }

  let asset = AVAsset(url: url)
  let player = AVQueuePlayer(playerItem: AVPlayerItem(asset: asset))
  player.actionAtItemEnd = .pause

  let movieLayer = AVPlayerLayer(player: player)
  movieLayer.videoGravity = .resize

  let tracks = asset.tracks(withMediaType: .video)

  let movieTrack = tracks[0]
  let size = movieTrack.naturalSize

  movieLayer.frame = CGRect(x: 0,y: 0,width: size.width,height: size.height)
  self.view.layer.addSublayer(movieLayer)
  player.play()
}

… And a whole lot more.

Best 7 Collaborative Coding Tools for Remote Pair Programming

Looking for a collaborative coding tool that will work with your remote team? We look at the best collaborative coding tools that will make remote pair programming easier and more productive for you and your team.

If you’re a programmer, you know that collaboration is key to success. And there’s no better way to collaborate than through pair programming. This type of programming allows two or more programmers to work together on the same code, sharing ideas and solving problems as they arise.

When the pandemic began, code collaboration tools lagged behind the polish we’d come to expect from other real-time teamwork apps. But things have come a long way in a short time, and there are more quality options than ever.

These tools will help you communicate and code effectively with your team, no matter where they are in the world. Plus, they’re all free to use!

What Is Remote Pair Programming?

Before we dive into the best collaborative coding tools, let’s first answer the question: what is remote pair programming?

Pair programming is when two or more developers work together on the same project. They help each other out and learn from each other. This can make the team more cohesive and also help to create a better product.

Remote pair programming is when two or more programmers work together on code remotely. This can be done online using a variety of different tools.

Learn more about how to start pair programming in our pair programming guide.

Benefits of Remote Pair Programming

There are many benefits to remote pair programming, including:

  • Increased productivity: Studies have shown that pair programming can increase productivity by as much as 15%.
  • Better code quality: When two or more people are working on the same code, there are fewer mistakes and errors.
  • Easier problem solving: Two heads are better than one! If you’re stuck on a problem, working with someone else can help you come up with a solution more quickly.
  • Better communication: Working closely with someone on code can help improve communication skills and make it easier to give and receive feedback.

What Are Collaborative Coding Tools?

Collaborative coding tools are apps or services that allow programmers to work together on code remotely. These tools offer a variety of features, such as real-time multiplayer editing, audio and video chat, and group debugging.

Several product categories could be described as collaborative coding tools.

  • Cloud IDEs: These are online code editors that allow you to write, edit, and debug code in your web browser. They’re great for collaborative coding because they allow multiple people to work on the same code at the same time.
  • Local IDEs: These are code editors that you install on your computer. They often offer more features and customization than cloud IDEs, but they tend not to be as convenient for collaborative coding because you have to configure additional tools or share your computer’s screen.
  • Code Sharing Tools and Playgrounds: These are websites and apps that allow you to share code snippets with others. They’re great for collaborative coding because they’re simple and easy to use.

There are also adjacent categories like code review tools that support code collaboration workflows. They’re great because they help improve the quality of your code. But we’ll leave apps for managing the meta-work around coding for another piece.

In this article, we’ll look specifically at tools that enable developers to collaborate on code online in real-time.

The Rise of the Cloud-based Development Environment

The lines between these product categories themselves are increasingly blurred.

Microsoft, for instance, has been making major investments in the developer experience of cloud-based developer tooling — and their investment is paying off. That means the capability gap between Visual Studio Code on your local machine and the GitHub Codespaces it can connect to are smaller with every release.

Today, Visual Studio Code users can easily choose to work locally or connect to cloud-based development environments, like GitHub Codespaces.

The resulting experience delivers the responsiveness and configurability of your local development setup with the flexibility and sheer computing power of cloud computing.

Microsoft in particular has invested in making cloud-based development environments a first-class developer experience, with collaboration tools to suit.

The Best Collaborative Coding Tools

So what makes a great collaborative coding tool? While reviewing the products on the market, these are the factors we found to indicate the best experience (and often the most forward-thinking one).

  • Multiple communication options (voice, video, text chat).
  • A true multiplayer experience. No inherent, opinionated restrictions on the number of collaborators (i.e., not just for pairs) or their ability to interact with the code based on opinionated pair programming workflows (driver/passenger, etc).
  • Full access to one’s usual local development environment and tooling. Great collaborative coding tools transcend traditional pair programming limitations and let both participants enjoy the setup they’re already comfortable with.
  • A fluid and responsive experience that doesn’t exacerbate the challenges of remote work.

A great collaborative coding tool should help us pair program remotely but offer flexibility for different collaborative use cases. It should aim to be a power tool that solves all your real-time code collaboration needs, not a one-trick pony.

Here are our picks for the best collaborative coding tools.

1. Visual Studio Live Share

Visual Studio Code Live Share

Live Share is installed as an extension and it works smoothly whether you’re running VS Code for desktop or the VS Code web client.

Live Share allows teams to collaborate on a shared codebase while maintaining the ability of each collaborator to navigate and work independently. While many code collaboration tools have traditionally been bound to the host’s perspective, Live Share allows each person to navigate files and make changes to code on their own terms.

Live Share can share your workspace, terminal, and local servers, and you can communicate over voice from within the tool. This is a polished option with other useful touches, like group debugging and a focus-and-follow feature that allows you to draw the attention of your collaborators. With a price tag of free, this choice is a no-brainer — particularly if you’re already a Visual Studio Code user.

While you’re at it, check out our Visual Studio Code power user’s guide and our VS Code extension recommendations for JavaScript developers.

2. CodeSandbox Live

CodeSandbox Live

CodeSandbox allows you to collaborate on your sandboxes with its Live feature.

Users can make a sandbox live and share the URL with collaborators. You can determine whether anyone can edit at will, or control who can edit at a given time (classroom mode). File changes, dependency changes, and selections are all kept up-to-date across sessions.

CodeSandbox has a robust free offering, and the $9/month Pro plan provides unlimited private sandboxes and support for private GitHub repos.

3. Codeanywhere

Codeanywhere

Codeanywhere is a browser-based development environment that aims to help you code from any device without friction — editor, terminal, revision tracking, and other features all included. Codeanywhere has a collaborative focus. For example: instead of having to zip up your project every time you want to share it (without adding someone to your private repo), you can generate a sharing link instantly.

The feature of interest here is Codeanywhere’s live pair programming. Like Live Share or Teletype, this promises a Google Docs style of document editing, with no limit on the number of collaborators. Another handy feature we know from Docs: click on your collaborator’s icon and you’ll be taken to the line they’re working on.

Codeanywhere will cost you anywhere from $2.50/month to $40/month, depending on plan tier and billing frequency.

4. CodeTogether

CodeTogether is a new contender in the space since the first edition of this article was published, and it is purpose-built to enable remote pair programming.

Most of the tools we’ve explored are built around a single editor, which limits their practicality given that editor choices are often not standardized across a team. CodeTogether is particularly appealing because it is available for Eclipse, VS Code, and IntelliJ-based IDEs. Participants can jump into a browser-based editor regardless of their personal editor preference, so CodeTogether works for a solid cross-section of users.

As with Live Share, CodeTogether participants can move about the project freely. Users can work on their own tasks independently, search across all shared projects, or choose to follow another user’s viewpoint.

Between its editor-agnosticism and collaborative flexibility, CodeTogether now looks like the best option for many real-world teams.

CodeTogether is free with a 60-minute session limitation. The Pro tier for individuals unlocks unlimited sessions from US$4/month.

5. CodePen

CodePen Collab Mode

CodePen Pro subscribers can access Collab Mode, allowing multiple users to edit a single pen at the same time. Only the owner of the pen needs to have a Pro subscription for this to work.

Each user’s changes, selections, and settings changes are reflected in Collab Mode, and there’s a live chat area built-in.

The pen’s owner can decide whether to save the changes, and collaborators can fork the results off into their own pens.

While you’re probably not doing your primary development out of a CodePen, this is a great way to run through a troubleshooting session with a friend or coworker, conduct interviews, or collaborate in other ad hoc situations.

CodePen Pro costs anywhere from $8/month to $39/month, depending on plan tier and billing frequency, and places collaborator limits on each of the three tiers: 2 people, 6 people, and 10 people respectively.

6. Teletype for Atom

Teletype for Atom

Teletype for Atom, an early entrant among real-time code collaboration tools, allows Atom users to share their workspace with team members.

While Live Share users can move around a project freely, Teletype is a little more host-centric. After the host opens a “portal”, their active tab becomes a shared workspace, and collaborators follow the host as they move between files. Teletype is well-suited to the pair programming use-case — with its driver and navigator model — but not as robust for all purposes as Live Share’s open-ended collaborative development environment.

7. Remote Collab for SublimeText

Remote Collab for SublimeText

Remote Collab brings virtual pair programming to SublimeText. Remote Collab is a barebones plugin, but if you’re invested in SublimeText it might do the trick for you.

Each session is bound to a particular document. Once the host has begun a session, collaborators just need the host’s IP address to join, and any changes made will be reflected across machines.

Wrapping It Up

It’s a great time to be a remote developer — there are a lot of solid tools out there for collaborating on code. We hope this helped you find the right one for you. If you’re struggling to narrow it down, though, we’d recommend Visual Studio Live Share for those committed to Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code, CodeTogether for mixed editor teams, and CodePen for ad hoc collaboration.

Now you’ve got your toolkit sorted, make sure you’re making the most out of pair programming with our in-depth pair programming guide by M. David Green, development workflow expert and author of Scrum: Novice to Ninja.
