Presentation Software


  • Showoff
    ShowOff is a Sinatra web app that reads simple configuration files for a presentation. It is sort of like a Keynote web app engine - think S5 + Slidedown. I am using it to do all my talks in 2010, because I have a deep hatred in my heart for Keynote and yet it is by far the best in the field.

  • https://github.com/nono/slide-em-up
    Slide'em up is a presentation tool. You write some slides in markdown, choose a style and it displays it in HTML5. With a browser in full-screen, you can make amazing presentations!

  • Keynote - A Terminal Keynote processor
    TermNote is a program that allows you to write presentations either in Ruby:

  • Terminal Keynote
    Terminal Keynote is a quick and dirty script I wrote for presenting my talks at BaRuCo 2012 and RailsClub 2012.

  • Slider
    Slider is a simple Ruby module to allow a presenter to create and view a
    slideshow using only a terminal emulator. It requires the use of the console
    application 'figlet' to draw the fancy headings.

  • tpp - text presentation program


  • RevealJS - best!

  • CoderDeck
    Create interactive live-coding presentations for the web.

    CoderDeck combines Deck.js with the CodeMirror2 highlighting code editor to make it easy to demo and teach live HTML, CSS and Javascript directly in the browser.

    CSS-based SlideShow System
