There are some nice tools to save what is being done on the terminal to a low-volume animated formats like SVG or GIF file that can be displayed on a webpage easily. This is very good for demonstration purposes on the webpage.

For example the asciicast2gif package which uses the outputs of asciinema. asciinema is very interesting: you run it and it saves everything that is typed/printed on the terminal along with a time stamp in a plain text file. asciicast2gif then converts that information into a graphic rendering of the terminal as a GIF image!

Alternatively, svg-term-cli does a similar thing, but generates animated SVG files (very good display of fonts sharply on the monitor since its vector graphics).

On asciicast2gif's README, there are also links to some alternatives:
