Starting & stopping shows

Now that you know how to create shows, how do you start and stop them?

The easiest way is with the show_player: section of either a machine-wide or mode config files.

You can use the show player to start, stop, pause, resume, advance, step back, and update shows. (That’s a lot!) You can also use it to set the playback speed, set up show synchronization, and set up show repeats and looping.

Note that any shows which were started via a show_player: section in a mode config file will automatically be stopped when that mode stops.

So check the show_player: documentation for details.
