jscreenshot - A utility for screenshotting and screen recording
In an effort to avoid dealing with shell escaping, enable more complex pipelines and user prompts, and to be able to generate an executable, jscreenshot was born.
One can install this with
jpm install https://github.com/llmII/jscreenshot
Once one has installed this, there will be a binary named
whichever directory they have
jpm configured to install binaries. From there
usage is pretty much self representative, as when one launches the application
it will guide them through a series of steps to take a screenshot, take a
recording, or end a recording.
This works great as is, but only if one runs wayland, and sway. We are not averse to the extension of this to support x11, or other window managers/compositors. It definitely would be nice for this to support more selection tools (like rofi) or drop some dependencies on external applications. This should also be improved to create the underlying directories in which it will store images/videos. It’d be nice for this to separate dependencies into a “recording” and “screenshotting” subsets and be capable of running with reduced functionality in the event we are missing a set of dependencies as well.
