Presenting hspresent

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.


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 --. 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
