lookatme.contrib.terminal builtin extension allows terminals to be
embedded within slides.
The terminal extension modifies the code block markdown rendering by intercepting
code blocks whose language has the format
terminal\d+. The number following
terminal string indicates how many rows the terminal should use when

```terminal8 bash -il ```
The content of the code block is the command to be run in the terminal. Clicking inside of the terminal gives the terminal focus, which will allow you to interact with it, type in it, etc.

The terminal extension also has a terminal-ex mode that can be used as the
language in a code block. When terminal-ex is used, the contents of the code
block must be YAML that conforms to the
The default schema is shown below:
command: "the command to run" # required rows: 10 # number of rows for the terminal (height) init_text: null # initial text to feed to the command. This is # useful to, e.g., pre-load text on a # bash prompt so that only "enter" must be # pressed. Uses the `expect` command. init_wait: null # the prompt (string) to wait for with `expect` # this is required if init_text is set. init_codeblock: true # show a codeblock with the init_text as its # content init_codeblock_lang: text # the language of the init codeblock
```terminal-ex command: bash -il rows: 20 init_text: echo hello init_wait: '$> ' init_codeblock_lang: bash ```
