gifify: easy video to GIF maker

Update: I’ve switched to using Gifski instead, as that provides a progress bar & a UI!

I’ve been using videos to illustrate points for quite some time now in pull requests and code issues. Since I switched to Github, I couldn’t really directly upload videos to an issue or a comment without uploading them somewhere, and that was kinda frustrating.

Enter: gifify

It’s a command-line tool that does the job well, and is a simple brew install gifify away. It does install a ton of dependencies though, but combined with the new Shift-⌘-5 shortcut, it’s super-easy to quickly record something to show folks on your Mac.
