If you have ever seen a movie with hackers in it, their computer screens always seem really busy computing stuff. My screen never looks this way in the real world, but I thought it’d be fun to try and impress my fellow patrons at the coffee shop.

There is a Docker image available on Docker Hub called “bcbcarl/hollywood” that allows you to turn your terminal into a Hollywood style real time hacking scene. It is very simple to get running. First, just pull the Docker image using this command:

docker pull bcbcarl/hollywood

Once installed, run the image by executing this command:

docker run --rm -it bcbcarl/hollywood

Your terminal will now look like a Hollywood hacking scene! (don’t worry, its not actually doing anything computational, it just looks like it is).
