Is there a way to record code typing and execution (as a video, gif etc) in RStudio?


#1

I'd like to mimic the below demonstration of rcmdcheck used in its README. Is there a way (say, through an add-in) to do this in RStudio?


#2

I just use Quicktime and convert afterwards with Handbrake or ffmpeg. There are alternatives, like Giphy Capture.

As far R packages, shinysense, which lets you access webcams, is under development, but I haven't seen anything for screencapture directly. I suspect writing a cross-platform solution would be complicated.

To follow up on this, if you're on Windows 10 the Windows Game Bar can be used to record your screen (even if you're not playing a game).
