danixland-asciinema is a plugin that adds a new shortcode to be used whenever you want to embed a video from asciinema.org.
As stated on their website, asciinema (formerly ascii.io) is a free and open source solution for recording terminal sessions and sharing them on the web.
It aims to be a “go to” place for every command-line user who wants to share their skills with others. Or putting it differently, it’s a place to show off your geekiness.
I decided to make this plugin because I was looking for a good and easy way to share a video from asciinema and I’m too lazy to dwelve into oEmbed 😀
List is actually empty, but I’m open to suggestions.

- I’m stuck with your plugin and don’t seem to be able to customize it/make it work, can you help me?
