Install

npm install iterm2-image

Usage

var drawInIterm = require('iterm2-image');

Load (and display) an image from a filepath:
drawInIterm('./path-to-file.png', function () {
imgLoader('./path-to-file.png', function (err) {
  if (err) { throw err; }
  console.log('done!');
});

Easy, huh? Now using streams:
var http = require('http');

var img = 'http://your/image';

http.get(img, function(res) {
  if (res.statusCode === 200) {
    drawInIterm(res, function () {
      if (err) { throw err; }
      console.log('done!');
    });
  }
});

TODO

Parametrize output stream. Return something meaningful in callback.
