Simple typewriter effect using Linux terminal and asciinema

I just found out about asciinema recently, it’s a beautiful little terminal app to record and playback activity in the Linux or Mac OSX terminal. Because of how it works, asciinema provides a sort of typewriter effect, which I happened to need for a recent project. So I threw together this file creator and posted it at my GitHub blog: Asciinema file creator.

Here’s the script live: http://ugotsta.github.io/tools/asciinema-creator.html

It uses jQuery Mobile, to make it easier to use by mobile and touch devices. The source file at GitHub is as follows.

How is this useful?

It’s not really, it’ll only be useful in rare cases like the one I’m using it for (a tiny project yet to be announced).

But here’s a quick example of how I’m using it, through Cool Retro Term.

I’ll try and post more details about how to use it all shortly. For the 2 people that might actually use it! 🙂
