What is it?
A simple framework for building presentations with modern web standards
- An HTML file contains the whole presentation
- Themes as CSS files
- I had to create a presentation for my talk at Front Trends 2010
- The only web-based presentation system I knew of was the HTML5 presentation by Marcin Wichary which didn't fit my needs
- …so I rolled up my own
- FT2010 attendees asked me to release it
- and here it is! ;-)
What about S5?
- I found out about S5 afterwards, via Tantek Çelik
- Seems to follow a similar approach to CSSS…
- …but does a few things differently
- So I guess even if I knew, I would still make my own
- but take a look at it too, it's really good!
- …but you can also assign your own, bringing the best of both worlds
- Incremental display of slide contents (just add
- Slide scaling based on window size (size everything you want to be scalable in ems)
- Document.title changing according to slide title (fetched either from the
title attribute or the slide's heading)
- Only supports Firefox 3.6+, the latest Chrome/Safari or Opera 10.60+. Why?
- More lightweight
- Easier to understand code
- It's a presentation, so the environment is controlled anyway
- No mouse click to advance to the next slide. I consider it annoying.
