LSST beamer presentation template

The presentation template lets you create new beamer presentations using the :ref:`LSST-beamer <lsst-texmf-beamer>` class.

.. seealso::

   For background, see :ref:`templates`.

   For help with using the ``LSST-beamer`` class, see :ref:`lsst-texmf-beamer`.

Invoking the template

After you have :ref:`set up <template-set-up>` cookiecutter and cloned the lsst-texmf repository, you can create a document by pointing :command:`cookiecutter` at lsst-texmf’s :file:`templates/presentation` directory. For example, from a directory containing a lsst-texmf clone:

cookiecutter lsst-texmf/templates/presentation

Cookiecutter will prompt you to configure your document.
