NodeJS

Install

First, install dashcam via npm.
npm install dashcam --save

Create a Replay

Then you can trigger desktop replays programmatically like so.
const dashcam = require("dashcam");
​
let replay = await dashcam.createReplay({
title: "My New Replay",
description: `This **renders markdown** or plaintext in monospace font.`
});

Catch Application Crashes

Then, call createReplay when your application crashes.
const dashcam = require("dashcam");
​
process.on("uncaughtException", async (err) => {
let replay = await dashcam.createReplay({
title: "uncaughtException",
description: err,
});
console.log("Dashcam Clip", replay);
});
​
setTimeout(() => {
throw new Error("Throw makes it go boom!");
}, 3000);

Electron

const { dialog, shell } = require("electron");
​
const options = {
type: "question",
buttons: ["Yes, please", "No, thanks"],
defaultId: 0,
title: "Error!",
message: "You've encountered an error!",
detail: "Would you like to send a replay to the dev team?",
};
​
let res = await dialog.showMessageBox(null, options, (response) => {
console.log(response);
});
​
if (res) {
shell.openExternal("replayable://replay/create");
}
