Before a candidate shares their test, they may add a title and description to their video.
- The description should give an overview of things that happen in the test and any commentary about why a particular coding decision may have been made.
If the code is public, have the candidate link to the repository in the cast description!
Paircast works with git. Check out these articles to learn about how Paircast works with git:
The Paircast transcript can be used to create readmes that will display on GitHub and other hosted git sites.
If you wish to import a cast to another platform, such as a GitHub readme, YouTube, Dev.to, or even in your own documentation, all you need to do is copy and paste the markdown from the editor to your favorite publishing platform. If a reader needs to see the video, they can click the <sup> tag! This will bring them back to the Paircast player and jump right to that timecode.
For more on publishing markdown, see view source.
You can download videos by using the HTML element. Click the 3 dots, then download.
Then, open the video in any editor, create GIFs, clips, summaries, and best-ofs! Once you’re ready, if desired it can be uploaded to YouTube and link back to the Paircast for code samples!
