Instead of using screen recording apps or making blurry videos, you can record and share your terminal sessions using Asciinema. The crowdsourced coding archive lets you save your text-only videos straight from the terminal. They are also copyable, giving other coders an open source platform to learn from.

Asciinema is also very easy to use. To install the software, just type a short command into your operating system of choice and an additional line to start recording your terminal sessions. The platform will record and play back your session instantly, allowing anyone watching to pause the video at any point to copy your code.

This tool provides an interesting resource for people learning to code, especially young students in school.
