For a few days I have been looking for alternatives to transform short screencasts into GIF images in order to show you some ideas on my blog. You know, an image is worth a thousand words.
I had the opportunity to play with these tools:
Asciinema I love it!, IMHO is the best way to record a command line session and share it with colleagues. Actually, I used it in my article Self-signed Https support and I will continue using it. In the other hand, you can’t record anything other than a terminal session but it’s the service they offer and it works great.
Peek is also great, but at the time of writing this article, in my Arch Linux didn’t work properly.
Giphy is amazing but I ruled it out because I don’t want my gifs to be hosted in a datacenter in the middle of nowhere.
