CLI for live-streaming your local dev environment
Scrimba is a screen sharing tool for developer teams. It's command line-based and allows you to do the following:
- Live stream your local dev environment to a URL
- Collaborate in real-time and discuss via voice chat
- Keep a recording of the session afterwards
The most popular use-cases are code review, onbarding, and documentation.
# install the CLI$ npm -g install scrimba# navigate to your project$ cd my-awesome-project# start a live stream$ scrimba start
This will open
my-awesome-project as a scrim in Chrome, which will look something like this:
Now you'll be able to interact with your local workspace via this scrim. This means that you can edit and save files, and run commands in the terminal. To start collaborating, simply share the URL with a colleague and she'll be able to jump into your local workspace instantly.
