Images

Image paths are relative to the directory where your slides are kept, and where you invoke present.

![RC](images/recurse.png)

Note: You can use high resolution images and tweak the terminal font size to get the best results.

Code blocks

```
import os

os.getcwd()
```

Codios

Codios are pre-recorded playable code blocks which can be useful for live demos. You can find out how to write one in the codio section of the documentation.

![codio](codio.yml)

Style

Each slide can be styled with foreground / background colors and effects. By default, slides are black on white with no effects. You can add style to a slide by adding a comment at the beginning of the slide (after the slide separator):

Slide 1

---
<!-- fg=black bg=yellow -->

Slide 2

---
<!-- effect=explosions -->

Slide 3

Colors: black, red, green, yellow, blue, magenta, cyan, white.

Effects: fireworks, explosions, stars, matrix, plasma. More coming soon!
