# hspresent: A terminal presentation tool

[ bsd3, console, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Hspresent 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.

Invoke like hspresent pathtoyourpresentation. Left and right arrow keys move between slides, and hitting q or 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).

## Usage

Invoke like hspresent /path/to/your/presentation. Left and right arrow keys move between slides, and hitting q or 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 this is . really cool -- 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
