Smooth is a library, wrapped around the amazing haml-sass parser, to generate sexy html-slides from a haml file.
(README and documentation under heavy development)
1. Create a
template.haml in your working directory for your slides:
- layout :default - about do -title "My first Slides" -subtitle "Generated with Smooth" -author "Your Name" - slides do -title -slide "Title of the first Slide" do %p This is something I wan't to say here -section "Syntax highlighting", :desc => "Follows on the next slide" -slide "Syntax highlighting" do %p we use the blackboard TextMate theme here ~ code :ruby, :blackboard do :plain class Slides def present "I present my slides, now!" end end
smooth build in the same directory
3. Watch the result of the File above
Basically, it provides a bunch of useful and slide-related helpers and enhancements to haml.
Smooth implements a component-helper, that generates dynamic methods in your template.
Example template: .my-template = header "my title", :subtitle => "something special" do %p content of the header
If the method
header is not found in the render context, the component_resolver searches in configurable directories for component files.
If such file is found (
[your_project]/components/header.haml in this specific case) it is rendered.
The first argument is passed as an local variable called
title, the block is accessible through
The optional arguments hash creates variables identifyed by the key and set to the value. (Since these arguments are optional, they should only be used after checking their definition)
So, the header-component could look like this: .header %h1= title %h2= subtitle if defined? subtitle
Note: Components are nestable.
