LFE Presentation for Erlang Factory 2014
This presentation was created with holpon.reveal. There is a live version of it running here. It only seemed a natural thing to do, when creating an Erlang presentation, to create the slides in a Lisp as well ;-)
The information that follows below is for using hoplon.reveal, or for using this presentation as the basis for your own.
If you want to build your own themes, you'll also need:
The latest version is:
(defproject your-project "1.2.3" ... :dependencies [[hoplon.reveal "0.1.0"] ...] ...)
You can then use it in your project like so:
(ns your-project.some-module (:require [hoplon.reveal :refer [intro chapter slide notes highlight bullet]])) ...
Although this would allow you to use the Hoplon and
and macros, you would still need to add the Reveal.js files. As such, it might
be easier to simply clone this repo and work from there (see the "example
To get a better sense of how you'd use
hoplon.reveal, here is a complete
slide deck defined in a file called
example_deck.cljs.hl (but compiled to
(page "example-deck.html" (:require [hoplon.reveal :refer [slideshow deck chapter slide bullet notes highlight quicklist]] [hoplon.util :as util] [example-deck.chapter1 :as ch1] [example-deck.chapter2 :as ch2] [example-deck.chapter3 :as ch3] [example-deck.chapter4 :as ch4] [example-deck.chapter5 :as ch5] [example-deck.chapter6 :as ch6] [example-deck.chapter7 :as ch7])) (html (head) (body (slideshow :theme "moon" (ch1/slides) (ch2/slides) (ch3/slides) (ch4/slides) (ch5/slides) (ch6/slides) (ch7/slides))))
And here's what one of the
chapters (set of slides) looks like from that
(chapter :title "HTTP Kit" (slide :title "A Clojure web server" (quicklist "Supports WebSockets and long polling" "Supports HTTP streaming" "Compatible with Ring" "So fast" "Also a HTTP client")) (slide :title "Streaming example" (sample-code/get-http-streaming)) (slide :title "Streaming an OutputStream (part 1)" (sample-code/get-http-outstream-p1)) (slide :title "Streaming an OutputStream (part 2)" (sample-code/get-http-outstream-p2)) (slide :title "WebSocket example" (sample-code/get-http-websocket) (notes "Note the unified API, allowing us to degrade to long polling")))
We're going to assume that you will develop your slides inside a clone of this repo, for your convenience:
Open two terminals in the cloned directory.
Start the auto-compiler in one terminal:
$ make watch
Run a dev HTTP server in the other terminal:
$ make dev
Open the example deck and navigate through it!
Check out the beautifully clean source code :-)
Create your own slide deck!
You can give your slide deck a feel all your own by following these steps:
Install Node.js on your system.
$ npm install -g grunt-cli
$ gem install sass
$ cd resources/assets/reveal.js
Install any missing deps for Reveal.js:
$ npm install
Duplicate any needed
Add it to the compilation list in
Add any needed images and update your
Update any of the
css/theme/template/*.scssfiles that you need.
Update your hoplon.reveal slideshow to use the new theme, e.g.:
(html (head) (body (slideshow :theme "my-new-theme" ...)))
