A Ruby gem that lets you create slide shows and author slides in plain text using a wiki-style markup language that's easy-to-write and easy-to-read. More Slide Show (S9) Project Site »
The S5 Blank package bundled up into a Slide Show (S9) template pack that lets you author your slides in a wiki-style markup language (that is, Markdown or Textile) plus lets you use text filters and helpers for adding comments, macros, includes, syntax highlighters and much more.
Note, the S5 blank package is configured to use
the following headers in
author: Your Name Here company: Your Company Here title: Your Slide Show Title Here subtitle: Your Subtitle Here footer: Your Footer Here subfooter: Your Subfooter Here
If you want to try it yourself, install (fetch) the new template pack. Issue the command:
$ slideshow install s5blank
Or as an alternative clone the template pack using
git. Issue the commands:
$ cd ~/.slideshow/templates $ git clone git://github.com/slideshow-s9/slideshow-s5-blank.git
To check if the new template got installed, use the
$ slideshow list
Listing something like:
Installed templates include: s5blank (~/.slideshow/templates/s5blank/s5blank.txt)
Tip: To get started use the welcome quick starter sample. Issue the command:
$ slideshow new
Now you will have a copy of the
welcome.text Quick Starter sample
in Markdown in your working folder.
