Welcome to TerminalCastTerminalcast is a new system for sharing computer knowledge. Rather than record a video of output, Terminalcast records the exact text and reanimates it.
- How to record a terminalcast
- You can download the Terminalcast Recorder from github Terminalcast Record
On October 13th I will present Terminalcast at Lispnyc's meeting. Directions: P&Gs, near the 1,2,3 and B,C stops. Head to the northwest corner of 78th and Columbus then down the stairs outside.
- I gave a brief demonstration of Terminalcast at Yahoo's Open Hack NYC
I wrote Terminalcast to become a better programmer, not through the act of writing it it, but because I want to see how other developers practice their craft. I had been primarily working at home for the past 2 years and (sometimes) I missed being in an office around other developers, seeing cool text editor or programming tricks. So I came up with a better way of recording what a programmer does.
I have always found watching screencasts of people programming to be annoying. The video is either huge and slow to load, or it is blurry, and you can never copy and paste text out of it. To fix this I rewrote rxvt in hen a terminalcast is recorded rec_tcast saves the exact output sent to /dev/tty along with timing and sound streams. When a terminalcast is played these data streams allow a faithful reproduction of the original terminal session
