zent is a simple plaintext presentation tool.
zent does not need LaTeX, LibreOffice or any other fancy file format, it uses plaintext files to describe the slides and can include images via farbfeld. Every paragraph represents a slide in the presentation.
The presentation is displayed in a simple X11 window. The content of each slide is automatically scaled to fit the window and centered so you also don't have to worry about alignment. Instead you can really concentrate on the content.
To get a little demo, just type
zig build && zig-cache/bin/zent example
You can navigate with the arrow keys and quit with
If FILE is omitted or equals
-, stdin will be read. Produce image slides
by prepending a
@ in front of the filename as a single paragraph.
Lines starting with
# will be ignored. A
\ at the beginning of the line
#. A presentation file could look like this:
zent @nyan.png depends on - Xlib - Xft - farbfeld zent FILENAME one slide per paragraph # This is a comment and will not be part of the presentation \# This and the next line start with backslashes \@FILE.png thanks / questions?
