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.

Documentation

The documention is hosted at Read the Docs

Installation

Code Video Generator needs Manim and a few other dependencies. Please visit the documentation.

Usage

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 GitHub repository.

For more information on Manim, see their ReadTheDocs.
