    I've used the script command and asciinema [1] before. Easy way to record steps without missing anything.

    These days I reluctantly prefer embedding a static screenshot in my READMEs with a link to an asciinema animation. They're easy enough to record, and at least I'm not costing some poor sod who accidentally loaded my page $0.10 to download a giant GIF on mobile data.

    I you'd like to know what it is like to use Podman, I've found those Asciinema snippets by Matthew Heon (Podman contributor) quite helpful:

    Oh no need to, it's not that related and I think both stand out well on their own. As for the animated demo, it was with asciinema [1] (I think, it's usually what I have used in the past for this). Thanks for your good work!
