Paircast records your screen, code changes, and transcribes your voice while you work. Then, Paircast creates a markdown file that aligns with the video. Check out this short demo for an example.
This guide will help you record your first Paircast.
- First, you’ll need the software. Paircast is desktop software available for Mac and Windows.
Download and install Paircast from here.
- Then, configure Paircast to record your screen, microphone, and camera (optional).
- Next, tell Paircast where you’ll be writing code, this is called your working directory. Paircast will watch this directory and automatically commit changes to a new git branch.
- If your working directory doesn’t have a .gitignore already, you’ll need to choose a default one.
- Finally, click the record button! You’ll see a preview of your screen and camera. Paircast will start tracking changes, and you’ll receive a desktop notification when the first change happens. Changes not detected? See this article.
Now as you code, Paircast will transcribe what you say and log it to a markdown file along with code changes. Paircast turns your coding session into a readme!
When you’ve finished, click “Finish Recording.” Paircast will upload your video file, code changes, and publish your cast.
Click “Edit Cast.” This will launch a new browser window where you can playback and edit your cast.
