Improved API

We just released a major update to our API and command-line client, making it much easier to integrate video builds into your own software or delivery pipeline.

For example, you can set up a CI step to deploy your application and take screen-shots of key pages, then use Narakeet to include the latest look and feel of your application into explainer videos automatically. Another common use-case for Narakeet video automation is to create several versions of a single video, for example in different languages.

Until today, integrating with our API required hosting assets yourself, which was a big barrier for many people. Our new API supports uploading files directly to Narakeet, and building directly from files on your local disk. Here is a quick example: the following command will create a video from the local directory called my-video-project, with the main video script in video.txt inside that directory.

narakeet-api-client \
  --repository-type local-dir \
  --repository my-video-project \
  --source video.txt \
  --api-key $API_KEY

Narakeet helps you create text to speech voiceovers, turn Powerpoint presentations and Markdown scripts into engaging videos. It is under active development, so things change frequently. Keep up to date: RSS, Slack, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok
