heic-to-dynamic-gnome-wallpaper 🌅 🎞 🌇
This project offers a cli to convert MacOS's dynamic wallpaper stored in
.heic image containers to dynamic wallpaper definitions usable in GNOME.
Both solar position and time based wallpaper definitions are supported. Although due to the nature of the gnome wallpapers, solar based wallpapers will be transferred to a time based division, approximated from the solar position defined for each image.
Since most options are dictated by the image information, tweakable options are sparse. All you need to do is specify the path to the image you want to convert.
Optionally you can specify a path under which the new images extracted from the
heic are to be stored including the
xml specification for GNOME.
