Editly is a tool and framework for declarative NLE ( non-linear video editing ) using Node.js and ffmpeg. Editly allows you to easily and programmatically create a video from a set of clips, images and titles , with smooth transitions and music overlaid.

Editly has a simple CLI for quickly assembling a video from a set of clips or images, or you can use its more flexible JavaScript API. See more examples here. Check out for more.
