term-transcript CLI

Build Status License: MIT OR Apache-2.0 rust 1.45.0+ required

This crate provides command-line interface for term-transcript. It allows capturing terminal output to SVG and testing the captured snapshots.


  • The capture subcommand captures output from stdin, renders it to SVG and outputs SVG to stdout.
  • The exec subcommand executes one or more commands in the shell, captures their outputs, renders to an SVG image and outputs it to stdout.
  • The test subcommand allows testing snapshots from the command line.

Launch the CLI with the --help option for more details about arguments for each subcommand.


This example creates a snapshot of the rainbow example and then tests it.

Testing rainbow example

The snapshot itself is tested, too! It also shows that SVG output by the program is editable; in the snapshot, this is used to highlight command-line args and to change color of comments in the user inputs.
