TDF wiki now has a widget for embedding SVG animations rendered from
terminal recordings: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Widget:Svganimation
Widgets can only be created and edited by administrators due to the
obvious security issues arising from allowing the inclusion of freeform
allowed to be uploaded. Therefore, to be able to use the player controls
for the animations, I created a Python script that moves the animation
data into a comment in the SVG.
Terminal recordings are a nice way to show new contributors how to set
something up. The fact that you can select and copy text from them is
convenient. The recording and editing process is also probably simpler
for many people compared to a video-based screen recorder.
