This is a ridiculous presentation system that works great for creative, hurried people. See the demo for an example of it working.

It makes text and images as big as they can be, gives you minimal styling (em), and gives you left/right arrows for navigation.


You can skip every step by doing

curl -O

This is a bundle of all JS, CSS, and HTML code - which means that it's a bit harder to update, but there are no external dependencies here, so no conference-wifi-pwn.

Presentations with Big

Open Source

  • Big is awesomer because lambda contributed to it! And you can too: it's Public Domain, CC0.


Big is totally HTML5! It uses the HTML5 doctype: <!DOCTYPE html>! It's therefore imbued with standardslicious hypeclouds.


The source looks like:

<!DOCTYPE html><html><head><title></title><link href='big.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' /><script src='big.js'></script></head><body>
<div><em>Presentation software</em> for busy busy hackers</div>
<div>as <em>big</em> as it can be</div>
<div>no config</div>
<div><em>images too</em></div>
<div><img src='' /></div>
<div>JS+CSS <a href=''> tmcw/ big</a></div>
