Frequently Asked Questions

What's GitDuck?

GitDuck is a platform to show how you code and watch how other developers work. You can use it to do video code reviews, learn best practices, create walkthroughs, tutorials, etc.


How does it work?

We have a plugin for VS Code (other IDEs coming soon), so you can record and share yourself working directly from your IDE.

Once you start GitDuck in your IDE, it will record your screen (the first it finds), the code (only the code commited while recording) and your mic. The recording can be seen live or later by using the same link. Check an example https://gitduck.com/watch/5d6fcc075e065d6d69a278b4.


What data are you collecting?

We naturally care deeply about privacy and security. We record the screen, the microphone and the commit info that you commit while recording. You can always delete your videos and all data associated with it at any time.

You We use Segment with Amplitude and Google Analytics to analyze the product usage. Any personal info stored is the one provided by the user and can also be deleted very easily by the user.


Is GitDuck open source?

Our extensions are going to be open sourced very soon at https://github.com/gitduckhq.


Can I contribute to GitDuck?

Sure! One of the things we need help with is porting our extension to all IDEs and operating systems. You can check our repository here.


Can I record private videos?

Coming soon. :)


Is GitDuck free?

Yes for open source and public videos. We are going to offer paid plans for private and commercial projects.
