Terminal Screencast Revisit: Log output from a multiplexed terminal

Traditionally with script you have really only been able to log the output of a simple “single session” terminal window. However, if you capture the timing data from script you can actually log much more than that.

In a previous post I talked about how to save the timing data using script and then play it back using scriptreplay. If you use this technique and also use a a terminal multiplexer such as screen or tmux you can capture much more information in your screencast.

To see an example of this you can watch the video below where I use scriptreplay to play back an earlier recorded screencast.

NOTE: You must have an HTML5 capable browser.

Additionally, you can download the screencast.timing and screencast.log if you like.
