Shelr is a service which allows you to record and replay and publish your terminal on http://shelr.tv. This can be useful when you need to provide instruction on how a task was accomplished to a client. Granted, you will not want to publish any sensitive info when using this tool. The code for Shelr.tv service is also available on github.


From gem
You’ll need ruby and rubygems installed.

[sudo] gem install shelr

On ubuntu older than precise or debian older than wheezy you should also add following to your 



export PATH=/var/lib/gems/1.8/bin:$PATH

Watch asciicast for details 🙂
From packages

Publishing your record

When you have some asciicasts at your machine you can pick one:

shelr list (select id of your record)
shelr push ID

There is alias for last record:

If you want private record, provide –private switch:

shelr push last --private

Such record will be accessible by secret URL with access_key.
You need 


 tool from linux-utils. It’s already installed if You use Linux. Note that old school BSD 


 will not work.
Unfortunatly BSD and OSX ship old 


 wich lack timing support. If You use this systems – install 


 via ports macprots or homebrew and setup it as recording backend.

 brew install ttyrec # OSX sudo port install ttyrec # BSD / OSX shelr backend ttyrec # BSD / OSX
