Why another library to provide the ability to create a presentation in your browser? Isn't there already Revealjs which is good and reliable? Yeah, thought the same. But I was looking for a library which I can use in combination with React, Vue, Bootstrap, Materialize or whatever library I want. Something which only provides the essential functionalities like slides and fragments. So I've decided to write an absolutly basic, simple but functional library to provide these things.



Install package:

$ npm install @simonwep/presentr --save

Include code and style:

import Presentr from 'Presentr';



<script src=""></script>


<script src="node_modules/@simonwep/presentr/dist/presentr.min.js"></script>


// Simple example, see optional options for more configuration.
const presentr = new Presentr({

    // Selector for each slide
    slides: '.presentr .slides > section'

Optional options

const presentr = new Presentr({

     // Query selector to your slides.
    slides: '.presentr .slides > section',

    // Query selector for each fragment of the presentaion.
    fragments: '.frag',

    // Class which will be added to the current and previous slides.
    activeSlideClass: 'active',

    // Class which will be added only to the current slide.
    currentSlideClass: 'current-slide',

    // Same functionality, but for fragments.
    activeFragmentClass: 'active',
    currentFragmentClass: 'current-frag',
     *  Can be used to group fragments.
     *  Eg. Apply to multiple elements 'g-a' and they will 
     *  all get active until the first element wich this group 
     *  has been reached.
    groupPrefix: 'g-',

    // Start index. Does not change the slide sequence.
    slideIndex: 0,

    // Keyboard shortcuts.
    shortcuts: {

        // Jump to next / previous slide
        nextSlide: ['d', 'D'],
        previousSlide: ['a', 'A'],

        // Jump to first / last slide
        firstSlide: ['y', 'Y'],
        lastSlide: ['x', 'X'],

        // Jumpt to next / previous fragement. If the first or last fragment is reached,
        // the next action would jump to the next / previous slide.
        nextFragment: ['ArrowRight', 'ArrowDown'],
        previousFragment: ['ArrowLeft', 'ArrowUp']

    // Will be called on every slide change.
    onSlide(state) {
        state.presentr,        // Current instance
        state.slideIndex,      // Current slide index
        state.slides,          // Slides as HTMLElements (Array)
        state.slidePercent,    // Decimal percent value of how much of your slides are over
        state.fragmentIndex,   // Current fragment index
        state.fragments,       // Fragments as array in an array which index is the slide index
        state.fragmentPercent  // Same as slidePercent but for fragments on the current slide

    // Will be called on every fragment change.
    onFragment(state) {
        // Same as onSlide

    // Will be called on every slide or fragment change.
    onAction(state) {
        // Same as onSlide

    // Initialization event, will be called on first initialization of presenter.
    onInit(state) {
        // Same as onSlide


  • presentr.nextSlide() - Jump to next slide.
  • presentr.previousSlide() - Jump to previous slide.
  • presentr.firstSlide() - Jump to first slide.
  • presentr.lastSlide() - Jump to last slide.
  • presentr.jumpSlide(index:Number) - Jump to a specific slide.
  • presentr.nextFragment() - Jump to next fragment, if end reached the next slide will be shown.
  • presentr.previousFragment() - Jump to previous fragment, if start reached the previous slide will be shown.
  • presentr.jumpFragment(index:Number) - Jump to a specific fragment on the current slide.
  • presentr.destroy() - Destroys the presentr instance and unbinds all event-listeners.
