Code Video Generator is a library that uses the Manim animation engine to automatically generate code walkthrough videos. In fact, the source for the video above is at examples/intro.py.
The documention is hosted at Read the Docs
Code Video Generator needs Manim and a few other dependencies. Please visit the documentation.
Here is an example video script that creates a video of itself:
from code_video import CodeScene class MyScene(CodeScene): def construct(self): # This does the actual code display and animation self.animate_code_comments("simple.py") # Wait 5 seconds before finishing self.wait(5)
Save this code in a file called
simple.py. Now open your terminal in the
folder where you saved the file and execute
manim video.py -ql -p
You should see your video player pop up and play a simple walkthrough of
video.py. You can find some more simple
examples in the
For more information on Manim, see their ReadTheDocs.
