Terminal-based non-linear editor for terminal recordings

Project description

Editty is a terminal-based non-linear editor for terminal recordings.



When installing from source, it is recommended (but not required) to install Editty in a virtualenv. To set one up:

virtualenv --python=python3 editty-env
source editty-env/bin/activate

To install the latest version from pypi:

pip install editty

To install from a git checkout:

pip install .

In order to use the dissolve transition, you must run Editty in a 256-color capable terminal, such as gnome-terminal or xterm.


After installing Editty, you should be able to run it by invoking editty. If you installed it in a virtualenv, you can invoke it without activating the virtualenv with /path/to/editty-venv/bin/editty. which you may wish to add to your shell aliases. Use editty --help to see a list of command line options available.

Once running, pressing the F1 key will show help text.

Editty can load recordings in the formats produced by the script and ttyrec commands. It renders output in ttyrec format.

Editty does not modify the original source files, but rather references them by path name. Editty stores the edit decision list in its own JSON-based file format (use the .edit extension).

To exit, press CTRL-q.
