CSSS - Slide Show (S9) Template Pack
What's Slide Show (S9)?
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 CSSS package by Lea Verou 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 CSSS package is configured to use the following headers in
author: Your Name Here title: Your Slide Show Title Here
Try It Yourself - How To Use the CSSS Template Pack
If you want to try it yourself, install (fetch) the new template pack. Issue the command:
$ slideshow -f csss
Or as an alternative clone the template pack using
git. Issue the commands:
$ cd ~/.slideshow/templates $ git clone git://github.com/geraldb/slideshow-csss.git
To check if the new template got installed, use the
$ slideshow -l
Listing something like:
Installed templates include: csss (/~home/.slideshow/templates/csss/csss.txt)
Tip: To get started use the included quick starter sample. Issue the command:
$ slideshow -q csss
Now you will have a copy of the CSSS Quick Starter sample
in Markdown in your working folder.
Showtime! Let's use the
-t/--template switch to generate the
sample slide show. Example:
$ slideshow -t csss csss.text --h2
Note: Use the
--h2 option to break up slides on heading level 2
(the default is
--h1, that is, heading level 1).
Open up the generated
csss.html page in your browser. Voila. That's it.
