Retrofit is an ANSI art adapter for the modern terminal. It uses a series of transformations to make it possible to view ANSI art pieces in a regular Unix-like terminal and Windows console.

ANSI art

Rather than recreating the whole picture within an in-memory virtual terminal, retrofit uses the actual terminal as a live buffer. That makes it possible to view the art piece at limited baud, with accurate timing. It also correctly handles drawing out-of-order and full-blown ansimations.
