Projects / Pyntor


Pyntor generates slides for presentations on the fly from wiki-style text markup. This differs from most other presentation software, which generally generates static documents. Dynamic effects are possible to some extent during the presentation.

    Release Notes: Several new presentation components were added, including one to use POD as known from Perl files. All components now include usage information, and a new tool called pyntor-components is available to manage them, including Internet updates via the Get Hot New Stuff technology. Finally, manual pages were added and the documentation for component authors was revised.

      Release Notes: The component model has been overhauled. This led to new components such as TPP presentation slides import, a title page viewer, a generic background image component, and some others. Slides can now be exported to HTML and PNG or (fixed-size) PDF with a command line option. Full-text search is possible from within the presentation, as is manual page selection and display of time spent talking. An add-on tool is available that packs a pyntor release tarball together with the slides into a self-extracting Python archive, to be relieved of any dependency burden.

        Release Notes: The long-awaited ability to read slides either from tarballs or from directories separate from the program installation directory has been implemented. Some other minor changes include the screenshot export and the command line options.

          Release Notes: During the presentation, videos can now be shown and local programs can be executed. A text marker has been included, as well. The blend effect is now a separate component, the slides component accepts single pages and page ranges as arguments, and the program can be run in windowed mode.

            Release Notes: Components are now loaded dynamically as indicated in a presentation script file, including per-component options. A browser component has been added, which allows the user to visit Web pages while giving a talk.
