Text-based presentations: Peek at Pyntor

Categories: — josef @ 19:17

Alex asked for text-based presentation software. One decision to take is whether to use text mode only for the creation (e.g. LaTeX presentation classes such as Beamer or Prosper) or for the presentation itself. There’s TPP, the Text Presentation Program, written in Ruby which works fine.

A good choice in between is Pyntor, which is AFAICT the only fully modular presentation program on this planet. And of course it supports TPP slides, but also gives you the full power of Python for any graphical effects. A number of modules, e.g. for displaying SVG, are already included.

Disclaimer: I’m slightly biased towards Pyntor because I wrote it :) It’s not actively maintained at the moment but I’ll glady accept wishlist items.
