There are a slew of screen recorders out on the market, most used in famous tutorials and lectures from around the world. But one really catches my eye, and is perfect for a niche market. VIM users and command-line guru’s unite, because Asciinema is the PERFECT tool for terminal recordings. Asciinema works flawlessly with vim, zsh, and any other terminal application.
Simply run the following command in your terminal to install and begin using Asciinema! (Linux and Mac OS X)
$ curl -sL https://asciinema.org/install | sh
Please forgive the shotty video (below), I’m not a perfect typist and this was my third try! I recommend you check out the video by Asciinema at https://asciinema.org. I can see this becoming an amazing tool for tutorials, or even documenting the development of your projects!
