termtosvg is a Unix terminal recorder written in Python that renders your command line sessions as standalone SVG animations.



termtosvg is compatible with Linux, macOS and BSD OSes, requires Python >= 3.5 and can be installed using pip:
pip3 install --user termtosvg


Simply start recording a terminal session with:
$ termtosvg
Recording started, enter "exit" command or Control-D to end
You are now in a subshell where you can type your commands as usual. Once you are done, exit the shell to end the recording:
$ exit
Recording ended, file is /tmp/termtosvg_exp5nsr4.svg
Finally, use your favorite web browser to play the animation:
$ firefox /tmp/termtosvg_exp5nsr4.svg
