CLI for live-streaming your local dev environment

node https://join.slack.com/t/scrimba/shared_invite/enQtNDE4MzY0NDY3NzkyLWFhMzg1YzQ4ZWIwOGMyYzhiZTYxMmEyZTAzMTE5ZTBmMzE4ZDA5ZjM1N2ZjMDZjMmE5M2M4ZDNkN2JjNGM2YzQ

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.

Quick-start

# 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.

All features
