Try out asciinema.org for me

One thing I’ve been trying to solve is how to get a simple tool for people to post screen casts of their problems. So far the easiest to use has been asciinema.org, which you can see a sample of here:

asciicast

Take a look, and let me see if you can get a little screencast up to test it. This one isn’t important, just me running some kind of process that will scroll and do some vim action.

CAVEAT This does not work with Windows, but will work with Windows Subsystem for Linux or Cygwin.

Installed OK on OSX 10.15.2 (even via Brew) and seems to record and can save/playboack locally.

I cannot upload manually post cast or via rec commands to share, even after I asciinema auth .

upload failed: <urlopen error [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: unable to get local issuer certificate (_ssl.c:1108)>

EDIT: Found this link…this looks like a rabbit hole I haven’t time for today but will come back too. I like the concept of the tooling.

Whoa, that is bizarre. The SSL certificate looks totally fine but I guess OSX doesn’t like it for some reason? It’s not self-signed or anything. Try uninstalling the brew one and do it just with plain old pip. I wonder if brew is using something dumb.

Uninstalled brew version and issues persist. Following the GitHub thread, I’ve created a config file and toggled the https/http url.

It’s now progressed to a broken gateway issue that has its own thread. I’ll continue to battle on.

But as a general comment, I suspect any Mac Users might be reluctant to go through this to use the tool…

I use cloudapp
but I’m not sure of the exact functionality you’re looking for @zedshaw
