ASCII Presentation

Why use Sublime just to create presentations when you can also use it as the presentation tool?

Check out my presentation on browserify as an example.

This package helps you create presentations in a couple ways:

  • a syntax utilized to color highlight your presentation
  • a few keyboard shortcuts/commands to help create ASCII art and space out "slides"

Syntax

The following syntax is available and will be color highlighted based on your color scheme and the extra colors listed under Installation below. By default, the syntax highlighting works with files with the extension pres. The examples in the screenshots use a customized version of the Twilight color scheme.

Headings

Lists
