Slidedeck: HTML5 Slideshows in markdown

PyPI Version Downloads

Take a look at these slides!

Overview

This is a repackaging of the google io 2012 slidedeck, with some modifications, to be a little easier to use and more suitable for scientific presentations.

We've made a few changes:

  • You edit and author your entire presentation in markdown.
  • All the metadata about your project is set within the markdown file, including things like the title and author.
  • It's packaged as a python project.
    • You run slidedeck create to make a new deck. This will create a new directory with your project. In particular, there will be a fine in there called slides.md that contains the markdown source for your slides.
    • slidedeck render will render your deck from markdown to html5.
    • slidedeck watch will watch your project and rerender the slides whenever you change the content (useful for iterative development).
  • I made a few stylistic changes to the css, including changing the font size.
  • The slides can contain LaTeX, which is rendered via mathjax.
  • There are no google logos all over the place

Getting started

slidedeck can be installed with pip.

$ pip install slidedeck

Create a new project, complete with some template slides, the css, and the javascript.

$ slidedeck create my_slides

Look in there for the slides.md file, and edit it to your liking. When you want to see your work, compile the slides from markdown into HTML.

$ slidedeck render

You can also have the HTML auto-compiled from markdown, any time the files change on disk.

$ slidedeck watch

If you're curious about how any of these commands work, pass the -h flag to the command line executable,

$ slidedeck -h
$ slidedeck create -h

Tricks

slidedeck watch works nicely with the tincr extension for chrome, which will refresh your browser every time the html files its serving are changed on disk.

Adding molecules with JSmol

If you have internet access, you can add a molecule to your slides by using

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://chemapps.stolaf.edu/jmol/jmol.php?pdbid=1A9U&inline&script=cartoon only"></script>

more options are explained here.

For an offline version, you need a local copy of JSmol.min.js, and j2s (see the JSmol wiki).

Then add the following to the header of base.html

<script type="text/javascript" src="JSmol.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var Info = {
        height: 500,
        width: 500,
        use: "HTML5"
    };
</script>

And insert

<script type="text/javascript">
  jmolApplet0 = Jmol.getApplet("jmolApplet0", Info);
  Jmol.script(jmolApplet0,"background white; load 1A9U.pdb; cartoon only;")
</script>

in the slide where you want the molecule to appear.
