Control HTML5 Presentations with node.js
Created by John Polacek
First, download the source. Open up a terminal window, install the dependencies, and run the app.
$ npm install $ node app
Go to http://localhost:8080 to view the demo page.
Choose one of the demos and open the slides and controller links in separate windows. Push the buttons in the controller window to control the slides.
Make Your Own
Create your own slide deck using one of the presentation frameworks. Embed the socket.io and controldeck-slide.js scripts at the bottom of the page, before the
<!-- controldeck.js --> <script src="/socket.io/socket.io.js"></script> <script src="/controldeck-slides.js"></script>
Use the 2 button controller or create your own. Refer to the examples for how to do it. The code is straightforward. The controller pages simply use Node.js and socket.io to pass along commands to the slides page.
