Lecture

Lecture is a way to present a slideshow through the terminal. All slides are written in Ruby. There is an example in the examples folder, found here.

Installation

  ❯ gem install lecture

Usage

  ❯ lecture #{slides.rb}

Configuration

At the top of your slides.rb file you can use the configure method to configure settings within Lecture.

configure do |lecture|
  lecture.section_footer_text = "───"
end

Configurable settings include:

  • character_print_delay
  • transition_time
  • pygment_style
  • section_header_text
  • section_footer_text

Slide Types

When writing your slides.rb file you have four slide types available.

center

A center slide centers every line on the screen horizontally and vertically.

  center <<~SLIDE
    Hello


    This is a slide
  SLIDE

Center

block

A block slide preserves the text formatting, but centers the slide as a whole on the screen.

block <<~SLIDE
  The lines in this block of text are
  not centered
SLIDE

Block

section

A section slide has a title and draws a centered string of text above and below the title (default: " § "). It can be configured with the section_header_text and section_footer_text keys.

Sections allow you to group slides in your Ruby slide deck, and can yield to a block to promote slide organization.

section("This is a section") do
  center("This is a centered slide inside a section")
end

Section

code

A code slide contains source code and has syntax highlighting.

The code method requires a second keyword argument with the name of the programming language.

The syntax highlighting style can be configured with the pygment_style key. Styles can be found here, default is paraiso-dark.

code(%(
  class PostsController < ApplicationController
    def index
      @posts = Post.all
    end
  end
), lexer: :ruby)

Code

Keyboard Controls

  • SPACE or go to the next slide
  • go to the previous slide
  • a jumps to the first slide of the deck
  • d jumps to the last slide of the deck
  • j followed by a slide number(0 index) jumps to the given slide
  • w redraws the slide
  • q or ESC exits the slideshow

String Utilities

You have a variety of string colors and modes available when creating slides. To get a list of colors and modes you can use: Lecture.available_colors and Lecture.available_modes.

center <<~SLIDE
  #{'Slide'.bold}


  This is a #{'slide'.green}
SLIDE

You can also use ANSI escape sequences and unicode characters to spice up your slides.
