The Parrot seems to have many fans meanwhile, in particular since we're running Rocket.chat at SUSE. Some may find these emoticons distracting, some find it just cool and I would certainly love to see something like the Partyparrot but as a "SUSE parrot", probably someone manages to make the SUSE Geeko move in a similar fashion, as party_geeko. Finally I'd love to see this uploaded to the cultofthepartyparrot.com under "Party Guests". Because clearly the Geeko insists! :-)

Bonus: do the same with TUX for total ssǝuızɐɹɔ

Looking for mad skills in:

      While working on this I noticed that there may be license issues, not to forget that it's totally against the branding guidelines to not change the color or proportions of the gecko :-) Heck, without joking, I've asked Legal for advice ...

      I wont say I've got any of those skills, but I got bored of debugging my other hackathon project (Auto sharding in OpenStack Swift). And have this.. which is OK. I'm sure more graphically minded people can do better :)

      NOTE: only the head moves.. it would be better if we could get the whole body going. Also to make the rotation smooth I had to use 12 frames instead of 10 and had to pick 2 extra colours. So geeko will rotate slower then if friend :P

      Let's fix up that link: github link to party geeko

      And because I'm a perfectionist here is a version that runs at 42 ms a frame (instead of 50ms) to closer match the total rotation time of party parrot (total animation time): party geeko faster

      And to complete it off we now have it with a border and in both directions: partygeeko partygeekoleft

      It's been a while but not forgotten: I've finally opened a PR here: https://github.com/jmhobbs/cultofthepartyparrot.com/pull/373

      With a lot of pleasure I'm happy to announce that we've met the objective of this project, which is not only to create the party geeko but also make it join the party with the parrot. It's finally there, find it on https://cultofthepartyparrot.com/ as one of the party guests. Consequently I'll be closing this project.

      Have a lot of fun and remember, the geeko insists, too!
