This is a simple program that lets you give powerpoint-like presentations in your terminal (for certain definitions of powerpoint-like). It's extremely basic and unintelligent. Don't expect much.
Compile and install using cabal: cabal build && cabal install
This will compile hspresent, and install an
hspresent command line program.
You can download the latest stable release of hspresent on
Hackage. The git repository is
hspresent /path/to/your/presentation. Left and right arrow keys
move between slides, and hitting
Ctrl-C quits the presentation.
The file format is really simple right now. Slides are separated by lines
consisting of the characters
--. You can put the single character
. on a
line to demarcate a "split" frame. A split frame really creates a new frame with
the contents of the previous frame copied at the front (this is similar to how
beamer works). That's it. Here's an example presentation:
the title of the first slide
the title of the second slide
hooray for hspresent
look at how fancy the title to this slide is
bullet point one
bullet point two
- Fix a regression in 0.2.0 where resizing the window didn't cause the
display to be redrawn.
- New feature: if the first character of a frame is #, then the entire frame
will be commented out and not rendered.
