Adding widgets to a slide

Now that you know what widgets are, it's time to look at how you can actually use them.

Option 1. Define widgets when you define a slide

The easiest way to create and use widgets is to include them in the slide configuration when the slide itself is created.

You can do this when you define a slide in the slides: section of your config, or when you show a slide in the slide_player: section of your config. See the How to create slides guide for details.

Option 2. Use the "widget player"

If you want to add a widget (or a groups of widgets) to an existing slide, you can use the widget_player:. You can define your widgets there, or you can use widgets that you've pre-defined.
