New BartleBlog Feature: marketspeak!

Now, I don't know if this is useful, but I do think it's way neat.

Inspired by S5, rst2s5, and mootools I took an hour (or two) and hacked this neat little slide tool.

The goals differ from S5 in that I intend to write a frontend, so that you have a sort of very-poor-man's powerpoint, but also in that the output should be simple to embed in other pages so that I can eventually make this a part of bartleblog.

Check it out (click to go to next slide, move mouse to the top of the slideshow for controls):

Why use BartleBlog

(If you are a nerd)

Author: Roberto Alsina <[email protected]>

It's nerd-oriented

It's trivial to display source code, with proper syntax highlighting.

from base64 import *
def myFirstFunction():
      print b64decode ('YnllIHdvcmxkIQ==')

Even for things like shell sessions. Dammit, I am a nerd, I will try to add every nerd feature I deem cool.

It does things simply

Wanna show a flickr photo?

.. flickr:: myPhotoTitle

How about using openomy.com to share your files? And whatever else you can think of, it probably can be done.

It's very easy to extend

Really. It's simple python code.

  • The module to do syntax highlighting has 41 lines.
  • The module to do dynamic animated menus has 103.
  • The module to do calendars has 72.

If there is a python module or web service to do what you want, hooking it into BartleBlog is simple.

And it has kickass features

Like online, embedded, animated slideshows! Like this one! Done with 65 lines of simple almost-plain-text markup! Ok, it's not fully implemented yet, because it needs some manual code, but the hard part is done!

Or automatic SVN changelog display ( I admit that's somewhat niche ;-))

Now, who else has that kind of thing?

There may be an artifact when you slide out the syntax-highlighted boxes, but I have no idea how to fix it.

Also, I have not tested it at all in IE, so if it fails there, don't worry, that's to be expected!

Next time I speak in public, I may use this :-)

And, as a teaser... this is the source for the presentation you just saw:
