kirlent_sphinx is a Sphinx theme for generating impress.js presentations from Sphinx sources. It can also generate a revealjs presentation from the same document which can then be converted to pdf using decktape. A tutorial on CSS (in Turkish) is a lecture-oriented presentation which has a classic linear structure with some zooms. The sources display most of the abilities of kirlent_sphinx.

If you have used impress.js in your presentation (or website) and would like to have it listed here, feel free to edit this page.
