Projects / pylize


pylize is a Python script that makes the creation of on-screen presentations a matter of a few minutes. It generates a template master document, which can be edited with a text or HTML editor. The master document is then processed by pylize to generate HTML files for every slide plus a file for the table of contents. The presentation can be viewed with any CSS-capable Web browser. pylize is inspired by the Perl program PLies.
