Record and share your terminal sessions, the right way

Forget screen recording apps and blurry video. Enjoy a lightweight, purely text-based approach to terminal recording.

Record right where you work - in a terminal. To start just run 'asciinema rec', to finish hit Ctrl-D or type exit. Any time you see a command you want like to try in your own terminal just pause the player and copy-paste the content you want. It's just a text after all! Easily embed an asciicast player in your blog post, project documentation page or in your conference talk slides.
