This is meant to be an extremely minimalist presentation tool for Emacs org-mode. Simply layout your presentation with each slide under a top-level header, start the minor mode with 'org-present', and page through each slide with left/right keys.
Most of the time I'm giving a talk, it is a work in progress and I want to be be able to edit as I go along. Also, to split my frame and work on code examples with my slides still visible.
Add something like this to your emacs config:
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/path/to/org-present") (autoload 'org-present "org-present" nil t)
Precise behaviour of org-present during start and quit is controlled from hooks. The following will enlarge text, show images, hide the cursor and make the buffer read-only:
(eval-after-load "org-present" '(progn (add-hook 'org-present-mode-hook (lambda () (org-present-big) (org-display-inline-images) (org-present-hide-cursor) (org-present-read-only))) (add-hook 'org-present-mode-quit-hook (lambda () (org-present-small) (org-remove-inline-images) (org-present-show-cursor) (org-present-read-write)))))
Then start the minor mode with:
- left/right for movement
- C-c C-= for large txt
- C-c C-- for small text
- C-c C-q for quit (which will return you back to vanilla org-mode)
- C-c < and C-c > to jump to first/last slide
- C-c C-r set slides read only
- C-c C-w allow writing on slides
This works well with hide-mode-line, which hides the mode-line when only one frame and buffer are open.
If you're on a Mac with an older emacs you might also want to look at the
toggle-frame-fullscreen comes with emacs 24.
