It's that time of year when many of us get our advent calendars! If you are unfamiliar with an advent calendar, these are special calendars used to count down advent in anticipation of Christmas. In my experience the doors are placed randomly, and part of the fun as a child was working out where tomorrow's door was! Often these days, calendars have chocolates behind each door, but instead of buying an advent calendar this year, you should build an ASCII one!

Task

Given input of an integer (n) in the range 0-24, produce an ASCII advent calendar with the numbered doors up-to n, opened. You must use the same order as in the below example: 2, 17, 8, 12, 1, 6, 11, 20, 5, 22, 3, 10, 15, 23, 7, 16, 9, 24, 18, 4, 13, 19, 21, 14.

Doors

The closed door must be:

.-----------.
|           |
|           |
|           |
|       nn  |
|___________|

where n represents the number of the door (leading zeros are optional) and the opened door is:

.-----------.
|\          |
| |         |
| |         |
| |         |
| |_________|
 \|

except for door 24, which is instead:

.--------------------------.
|                          |
|                          |
|                          |
|                      24  |
|__________________________|
.--------------------------.
|\                         |
| |                        |
| |                        |
| |                        |
| |________________________|
 \|

These doors are arranged within a frame of 37 lines of 79 characters, with two spaces between each column, and an empty line between each row.

Opened Doors

When the doors are opened you must display one of the (tenuously Christmas related - apologies for my terrible art skills!) pictures below within the door:

"""""""  `====='    '-'      `"`      \/     [_____]  //       

Each image is 7 characters long and covers 4 lines so they will fit within the windows. You are free to choose any of the above images and use them in any order, but you may not repeat an image. For the 24th, you must also add a message:

       ~       
   ~ MERRY ~   
 ~ CHRISTMAS! ~
     ~~~~~     

which fits alongside one of the above pictures, you can choose whether the text is to the right or the left of the image.

Examples

Given input 0, output the calendar with no doors opened:

Rules

This is so the shortest code in bytes, in each language, wins.

  • Any reasonable format can be used for I/O assuming it is consistent.
  • Any amount of whitespace before and after the calendar is fine, as well as additional spaces/unprintables at the end of each line, but nothing before each line as this must fit into 80 characters.
  • All standard loopholes are forbidden.

Here you have the verbose version of the code, quite understandable. My approach is the opposite from @Neil's. He draws all the gifts and then covers those not needed. I only draw the gifts needed.

Might still be possible to golf this further by compressing the pictures, but that would likely require the use of extended ASCII characters which aren't currently supported on TIO.

\$\endgroup\$
  • \$\begingroup\$ How is Extended ASCII not supported? \$\endgroup\$ – Zacharý Dec 1 '17 at 16:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Zacharý On TIO the Befunge interpreters are configured to use a UTF-8 character set, so if you try to include an extended ASCII character in the source, it will be converted into some multibyte UTF-8 sequence instead. \$\endgroup\$ – James Holderness Dec 1 '17 at 19:29
  • \$\begingroup\$ Is one of the Befunges you used for the befunge-polyglot answer able to handle extended ascii? \$\endgroup\$ – Zacharý Dec 1 '17 at 21:11

    \$\begingroup\$ @Zacharý It's not the interpreter that's the problem - most interpreters can handle extended ASCII just fine. The problem is in the way TIO translates the webpage input before it passes it on to the interpreter. \$\endgroup\$ – James Holderness Dec 1 '17 at 23:29

First build closed doors, then replace the doors that need to be opened. Finally, output everything.

More golfed, but harder to see the pictures in the code.

Ruby, 974 bytes

This is a function, to be assigned to a variable such as f and called as f[n]. It prints to stdout.

Turned out longer than expected. I think there are a few more bytes to squeeze out by laying out the picture data differently, which I will try later.

I use symmetrical or near symmetrical pictures, and only the righthand half is found in the code. The left half may have up to 5 character subsitutions compared to the right. The code for making the substitutions is quite long, which partially negates the compression. Only about 60 bytes are saved.
