Requirements

You need to make a smiley face go from smiling to frowning and back. There needs to the below faces in the code: Smiling, no expression, frowning, no expression, and then back to smiling. The new face needs to replace the old face flipbook style so that there's only one face on the screen at a time. There is no input required it will just be a loop that displays one face, pauses for 200 milliseconds, and replaces the current face with the next and so on looping forever.

Faces to use:

                      __ooooooooo__
                 oOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo

Only one face shows up at a time and it should loop forever cycling between happy indifferent and sad.

Goal

Have the shortest code is always the goal but being able to tell that the output is actual a face is quite important.

    \$\begingroup\$ 1. Is the input one face, and the output the next in the sequence? Or is there no input, and it has to output a face, pause, clear and output the next face, etc? And if the latter, is it a single loop or does it loop forever? 2. If the goal is having the shortest code, why is the winner the post with the most upvotes rather than the post with the shortest code? \$\endgroup\$ – Peter Taylor Nov 19 '15 at 20:53

    \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to PPCG. Popularity contests of this type are generally not well received, as they are more of an art contest than a prgramming contest. A better way to go with this challenge would be for you to design some faces and make it a codegolf, so the winning depends on programming skill, like this: codegolf.stackexchange.com/q/49671/15599 . I think this is too simple Please stick around and answer a few challenges to get a feel for the site. Also, you can post challenges to our sandbox for feedback before they go live meta.codegolf.stackexchange.com/q/2140/15599 \$\endgroup\$ – Level River St Nov 19 '15 at 20:59
  • \$\begingroup\$ No input it just starts the sequence. It can be a single loop that lasts forever and I'll change it to the shortest code as per both pete and steveverrill suggested. \$\endgroup\$ – Blakethepatton Nov 19 '15 at 21:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ @PeterTaylor being able to tell that the output is actall a face is quite important. I think OP's intention is that we can redesign the face, but as that isn't a good idea (because everyone will just go :) to be as short as possible), I think you've jumped ahead. I think you are right, the challenge should have faces prescribed by the OP. \$\endgroup\$ – Level River St Nov 19 '15 at 21:05

    \$\begingroup\$ Added the neutral face back as the fourth face as it does need to cycle back in reverse order. Also defined that the pause is 200 milliseconds \$\endgroup\$ – Blakethepatton Nov 19 '15 at 21:40

<ESC> is a literal escape character (code 27). This program assumes that the terminal it is running on starts out blank

Explanation

Uses a simple run-length encoding scheme to compress the string. Any character can optionally have a number directly after it which tells the decompressor to print that character n + 3 times (eg. ab4c will become abbbbbbbc).

Without this compression the code size is just over 2000 bytes.

setInterval(
  _=>(c=console).clear()||c.log(            // clear and display the face in the console
    (                                       // piece together the appropriate string
      `TOP`+                                // run-length encoded face top string
      [`HAPPY`,n=`NEUTRAL`,`SAD`,n][i++%4]+ // encoded mouth string
      `BOTTOM`                              // encoded face bottom string
    )
      .replace(/.\d+/g,                     // search for each character-number instance
        r=>r[0].repeat(+r.slice(1)+3)       // repeat the character n + 3 times
      )
  ),
  i=                                        // i = iterator
    200                                     // set interval to 200ms
)
