slides from my talk for WhereCampBoston
It has some special characteristics:
It’s embeddable on a single page. The quickstart is
It’s weirdly attractive. White Helvetica on black, as large as it can go. The restrictions on styling and complete ignorance of monitor size are meant to deal with the trials of bad VGA projectors and conference wifi. Choose your own images, and if they’re too bright to be read on white text, crack open Photoshop and darken them. There’s really not much to it.
It doesn’t adapt to large blocks of text. It forces you into a writing and presentation style.
Oh, and it works embedded in
<iframe>s: below is a big presentation. Click to advance.
Thanks to an unfortunate travel schedule recently, I added onhashchange support so that your back button works, and touch support so it works on iPhones and iPads. Which means: a tap means advance the slide. There’s no back button yet.
I think it could be cool to keep pushing Big to be cleaner, smaller, and more usable. Another nice thing is that a slide in HTML looks like
<div>Hello</div>. That’s it: a
<div>. You can copy & paste them as you wish, and it’ll work. So despite being a nerd’s presentation sytem, there’s no real HTML knowledge required.
Oh, and if you’re looking for a less absurd presentation system, by all means please use the awesome deck.js.
So kick the tires. It’s open source, public domain.
