gifcap

A shell script to record GIFs from your Android devices

A picture is worth 1,000 words - and, when prototyping animations, recording visual glitches, etc, a video is worth far more. This script makes it easy to capture and share subtle app behavior by producing ready-to-paste-in-Slack GIFs with a single command.

Usage

gifcap your_file_name.gif

Note: you'll need an actual Android device plugged in - emulators don't generally have

screenrecord
built in.

Install

macOS

brew install gifcap

Note that we assume you have

adb
on your path. If you don't have an Android SDK, and want Homebrew to set it up for you:
brew install gifcap --with-android-sdk

Others

Ensure

adb
,
ffmpeg
, and
ffprobe
are on your $PATH. Also make sure that your console window is capable of executing
bash
.

Copy

gifcap
and place it somewhere on your $PATH.
