So something I’ve always wanted is the ability to “script” a video, so that all i have to do is edit the script file then regenerate the video.
I think I could hack this together by using shell-mode in emacs and then writing elisp to send commands to it. But, has anyone else done something like this?
An example, I have a project https://github.com/joelmccracken/reddup , and i get a lot of people who don’t quite “get” why the project would be useful. So I thought having a screencast would be a great way to “demo”. Basically, if I could script it, what I would do is something like:
cd to some directory
run a bunch of
touchcommands to set up a repo in a certain way.
run my project (and script the way it should interact)
I hope that is clear. The big value would be in having a repeatable “setup” and it would be a lot easier to add and remove demo features.
