// About Me



My name is Collin Grimm or better know as Nji Collins. I'm a high schooler (in my final year) and an open source developer. I have an interest in everything AI and in Open Source Software. My work focus is on data compression and medical software.

Oh before I forget, I can draw and paint! My portraits focus mostly on abstractions and my imagination :) I have some of my art on my art portfolio

Compression Engine

Compression Engine is a basic implementation of the LZW algorithm in C++. It is wrapped up into a commandline tool. It works perfectly with low entropy files (eg. text files).


No need to open your browser anymore to look for your favourite lyrics. Furler is a command line application (and NPM module) for getting the lyrics of any song right in your terminal! It is named after one of my favourite artists - Sia Furler


Snacky.js is a simple NPM module. This module is basically a plugin for a snackbar or toast message for web pages. The module follows the material design guidelines for style and hence blends in with modern web design
