beamertheme-bjeldbak

A simple beamer theme. I'm aiming for a minimalistic look.

This theme started off as me modifying Cameron Bracken's theme published in his blog post here.

Installing

\$ git clone git@github.com:martinbmadsen/beamertheme-bjeldbak.git

then, in your root or preamble set beamerthemebjeldbak.sty as the presentation style with \usetheme{bjeldbak}.

Minimum working example

Having cloned as above, this will compile a mini presentation.

\documentclass{beamer}

\usetheme{bjeldbak}

\title{Testing}

\begin{document}
{%
\frame{\titlepage}
}

\begin{frame}
It's working!
\end{frame}
\end{document}

Customizing

Here are a couple of things you can change up. I'm sure there are more!

Changing theme font

This is done on line 9 with \RequirePackage{tgpagella}, and can be set to any packaged font in the TUG font catalogue.

Changing current slide typography

Line 20 accomplishes this. You can replace / with -, of, or any other separation character(s) you may have in mind.

Changing top/bottom bar colors

If you want to change the color of the teal bars above and below each slide, simply change the \definecolor{barcolor}{HTML}{77C4D3} command on line 43 with any other hex value.

Showing clickable bottom bar

By default, the clickable navbar at the bottom (enabled by in all standard themes) is hidden, as I have never needed to use it. If you want re-enable it again paste the following after the \usetheme{bjeldbak} in your preamble:

\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}[horizontal]

Alternatively, remove/comment out line 40 in the theme file.
