About


 I'm Rahul Mula, and sometimes I create online courses on programming. Creating video lessons for programming courses often requires recording your screen. And mainly I press handy-dandy keyboard shortcuts (like Ctrl + T) to perform different actions. It's good and all but the viewer gets dumbfounded 😵, as they cannot see my keyboard.

Any content creator can relate to the same, i.e. displaying keystrokes during how-to videos, tutorials, presentations, or screencasts 🖥️. I used to add the keystrokes during video editing manually. Navigating to specific timestamp, adding the keypress-related text/image, handling the in and out animation (because animations are a must for engagement 👀), and repeating the same through the video.

Now one can clearly say this is not efficient, at least a programmer (me) will. So the obvious step was to search for a solution online. I did find some software that displays keystrokes on the screen but they were just ...old school (personal opinion). So I thought to myself - "Why don't I create one myself?".

So I took the bandana 🪢, wrapped it over my head (...not really), and started working on the development. After 6 weeks, I finished the development and published the first release of Keyviz on Github. That was the story behind the development of keyviz and thanks for reading through all this!
