Quickpreso is an attempt to make prototyping presentations be more like prototyping HTML pages.

Whether this is a good idea remains to be seen.

For more information, read the blog post.

Requirements

To generate presentations, you need:

The generated presentations use Popcorn.js for syncing audio to video content. Currently, the audio is only produced in Ogg Vorbis format, so only Firefox and Chrome can be used to view presentations.

Quick Start

  1. Run python manage.py runserver.

  2. Edit script.html to your liking. Each plain-text line is text to be narrated, while all HTML elements are slides that the narration voices over. Warning: The algorithm for parsing this file is currently very simple and fragile; every slide must begin with a <, and each slide and narration must be self-contained on its own line.

  3. Open/reload http://127.0.0.1:8020 in Firefox or Chrome.

  4. Repeat steps 2-3 as necessary until you're happy with your presentation. When you're finished, just upload everything in the static-files directory to a web server.
