Turn a list of URLs into a slick presentation. Ideal for showing off a bunch of links without fumbling around with browser tabs. First used at Hacks/Hackers DK.

How do I edit slides?
Slides are defined by links.txt.
- Lines with links (with
httpprefix) are turned into webviews
- Lines with text become standard text-based slides
- Blank lines are ignored
Why use Electron?
Webviews in Electron don't have CORS problems like proper iframes. Also, having it as a separate app stops your presentation from getting mixed up with other browser windows in the heat of a presentation.
Linkeynote is very small and (so far) short on features. And the code is a bit dubious in places. If you happen to use it yourself and make some improvements, please consider submitting them as a pull request. Thank you!
