Check out the documentation page for more information on the methods, events, and options available in core and all the included extensions. A sample standard slide deck is included in the package under the
introduction folder. You can also view that sample deck online to play with the available style and transition themes.
Take a look at the wiki for lists of extensions, themes, and other related goodies. If you have a publicly available project of your own, feel free to add to the list.
deck.js has been tested with jQuery 1.6+ and works in IE7+, Chrome, FF, Safari, and Opera. The more capable browsers receive greater enhancements, but a basic cutaway slideshow will work for all browsers listed above. Please don't give your presentations in IE6.
There is an issue with certain builds of Chrome that result in a solid blue background and generally broken decks. This is a bug in Chrome (Issue 91518) that stems from hardware acceleration of 3d transforms. Current workarounds:
- Use a different browser. This problem doesn't exist in Safari, FF, Opera.
- Disable hardware compositing by setting
--disable-accelerated-compositingin the Chrome loading options
- Replace instances of
translatein the CSS of your decks (though this will slow down performance on iOS devices and Safari.)
Firefox contains a bug that allows users to scroll horizontally using the trackpad despite
overflow-x:hidden. (Bug 664275 and Bug 325942.) If anyone knows of any workarounds to this issue please contact me.
Core includes stripped down black and white print styles for the standard slide template that is suitable for handouts.
If you would like to contribute a patch to deck.js please do as much as you can of the following:
- Add or amend Jasmine tests.
- Add inline documentation.
- If the standard snippet of an extension changes, please change it in both the introduction deck and the snippet html in the extension folder.
- If the API changes, it would be awesome to receive a parallel pull request to the gh-pages branch which updates the public-facing documentation.
