asciinema player

Build status

asciinema player is a web player for terminal sessions recordings.

Unlike typical web video players, which play heavyweight video files (.mp4, .mov), asciinema player plays lightweight terminal session recordings in the text-based asciicast format (.cast), such as those produced by the asciinema recorder.

The player is built from the ground up with JavaScript and Rust (WASM), and is available as npm package and a standalone JS bundle.

You can use it on any HTML page - in a project documentation, on a blog, or in a conference talk presentation.

It's as easy as adding a single line of Javascript code to your web page:

AsciinemaPlayer.create('demo.cast', document.getElementById('demo'));

Check out the quick start guide for basic setup overview.

You can see the player in action in asciinema documentation.
