An example slideshow looks like this.
#lang slideshow/simple slideshow/simple !image.jpg # comment line, ignored Depends on... - Racket - Slideshow slideshow FILENAME \#lang slideshow/simple \!IMAGE.png thanks / questions?
It can be run like so:
$ slideshow filename.rkt
To add an image, use
!/path/to/image, and to add a slide with some
text, just write some stuff followed by a blank line. Multiple lines
of text without blank lines will place all the text on a single slide.
A line that starts with a
# character is completely ignored. If a
comment line comes immediately after an image, paragraph, quote, or
list the comment counts as a blank line, and a new slide will be
created for the next non blank/non comment line. The comment will
become speaker notes.
A slide cannot contain both an image and text. Therefore, the following slideshow is invalid:
#lang slideshow/simple !image.jpg foo bar baz quux
If a slide starts with a
\ is ignored. This allows escaping
!IMAGE.png, lines that would otherwise by treated as
# comments comments
, and` literal escaped lines.
As mentioned above, speaker notes get added to a slide when comments are placed directly under your slide content:
#lang slideshow/simple This is the slide # These will show up as speaker notes. # This will show up on the same slide.
sent doesn't have lists, but they can be emulated by creating a multi-line slide with bullets as the first character. In slideshow/simple we've got bulleted, and numerical lists.
#lang slideshow/simple 1. We've 2. Got 3. Them. - We've - Got - Them.
Note, though, that lists must be by themselves. There's no title support, or additional paragraph support. This is considered a bug.
Text Wrapping to fit.
Long lines will be wrapped to fit, rather than overrun the slide, or be scaled to super tiny font sizes.
Quotes are popular in slides. slideshow/simple supports them.
#lang slideshow/simple > You miss 100% of the shots you don't take. > -- Wayne Gretzky
There is none. We'll likely add monospace support, cause that'd be nice for inline code.
