A note on how this was made if somebody wants to contribute or make another demo: I made a tool which on execution, puts next line of the commands file in clipboard. Then assigned it to a keyboard shortcut. For slow pasting, I used iTerm2's feature "paste slowly", assigned to another keyboard shortcut. After that, it was pretty easy: loop(shortcut1, shortcut2), and in between if I saw commands file might not have enough comments, inserted comments myself. That's why the actual demo has more comments than the commands file itself.
