wsent

A simple web presentation tool inspired by sent.

Note: this is a modified version of the sent readme.

wsent runs on a web browser, it uses plaintext files and images. Every line represents a slide in the presentation. This may limit the use, but for presentations using the Takahashi method this is very nice and allows you to write down the presentation for a quick lightning talk within a few minutes.

The presentation is displayed in a simple page colored black on white for maximum contrast even if the sun shines directly onto the projected image. The content of each slide is automatically scaled to fit the window so you don't have to worry about alignment. Instead you can really concentrate on the content.

Demo

To get a little demo, just navigate to wsent.html with your browser and choose the "example" file from the input field.

You can navigate with the arrow keys and quit with q.

Configuration

Edit wsent.html and change the config section to fit your needs.

Usage

Use images by prepending a @ before the filename. Lines starting with # will be ignored. A presentation file could look like this:

wsent
takahashi
why?
@nyan.png
easy to use
no dependencies
~100 lines of code
how?
browse to FILENAME
one slide per line
# This is a comment and will not be part of the presentation
# The next line starts with a whitespace, it will not produce an image slide
 @FILE.png
