Neofetch- A Command-Line System Information Tool.


The overall purpose of Neofetch is to be used in screen-shots of your system. Neofetch shows the information other people want to see. There are other tools available for proper system statistic/diagnostics.

The information by default is displayed alongside your operating system’s logo. You can further configure Neofetch to instead use an image, a custom ASCII file, your wallpaper or nothing at all.
