css content classes

Use css to create content classes to style elements

Emil Hvitfeldt true

Custom content classes are a great way to quick style elements of your slides. Create a css class, here is a class called .orange which sets the color to orange.

If you write .orange[some text] then it will be rendered as some text in the final document.



    css: ["default", "stylesheet.css"]
    lib_dir: libs
    seal: FALSE
      highlightStyle: github
      highlightLines: true
      countIncrementalSlides: false

# Sample .orange[Header]
