Make demos of your terminal commands and output in an attractive way.

== Description ==

Show the world how you use the command line with this plugin. Designed for tech blogs, tutorials and sections
where terminal commands matter.

This plugin, make a shortcode: [simterm][/simterm] and shows the text inside as in a terminal session, including
some typing animation and separating user input and program output.
By defaults commands have a $ symbol as the first character of the line and user input has the > (greater than)

You can also specify the color of the line using ##red## , ##blue## , ##green## or ##yellow## or even a custom
delay for this line with ##delay=[ms]## with the amount of milliseconds to sleep.

To create the effect it uses "Show Your Terms" by Kande Bofim, a tiny and library agnostic Javascript.

== Installation ==

1. Upload the plugin files to the `/wp-content/plugins/plugin-name` directory.
2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' screen in WordPress
3. Use the Settings->SimTerm Settings screen to configure the plugin
4. In your post enter [simterm][/simterm] shortcode to start a terminal session
