This presentation can be served from any standard web server. (For example, Caddy. See the included
Caddyfile for configuration details.)
A NodeJS-based web server is included to make it easy to run locally. To run the web server:
$ npm start
Then visit http://localhost:8000 in a browser.
NOTE: This is -- intentionally -- a "Fainting Goat" web server. It is meant to halt at every error that occurs, rather than recovering gracefully. I like this feature, but others might find it annoying. That's why both Caddy and NodeJS web servers are included.
Adding a New Language
If you'd like to add a new translation of this presentation, you can easily copy the
en-us canonical version into a new directory under
/slides by typing:
$ npm run addlang zh-cn
This will create a new directory tree that looks similar to this:
slides/zh-cn/ ├── css ├── js ├── slides │ ├── slide1 | ├── audio.mp3 | ├── index.html | ├── image.png │ ├── slide2 │ ├── slide3
After that, you can translate the text in
t while viewing the slideshow to open the Transcripts window and ensure that your translated text is being used.
If you'd like to add recorded audio, save the audio file as
slide1/audio.mp3 and reference it in
slide1/index.html. Similarly, you can add any translated images (screenshots, websites, etc.) as
slide1/image.png and reference them in
To view the slideshow while you are developing it, type
npm start and then visit http://localhost:8000/slides/zh-cn/index-src.html. This version of
index.html dynamically pulls in the slides on-the-fly.
