I'm always on the look out for small indispensable utilities that make the Linux experience even better. This week, I'm seeking to garnish support for peek. It's an unpretentious utility written in Vala. The utility has no delusion of grandeur. But it has qualities that carves out its own niche in the open source world. Peek is designed to make short screencasts.
It'ss not a general purpose screencast application like OBS Studio. Instead, peek captures silent screencasts of part of the screen. Examples of its usage including demonstrating user interface features of software, or creating a visual bug report. The software supports recording in GIF, APNG, WebM and MP4 formats.
