JSPWiki v2.2.28
Text2 Gif Plugin

With this Plugin for JSPWiki you can display text as gifs - why? Because you won't show your email in a text form for example. When you display it as gif, no spam spider can catch it.

For the generation of the GIF images the ACME.jar of the ACME Laboratories is used (Freeware).


Hello World!

is created by the following syntax:

[{Text2gif size='14' bgcolor='white'

width size of the produced gif optional (600?)

bgcolor color of the background optional (white)
color color of the text optional (black)
