bauchara

30-second slideshows for hackers with blackjack and hookers. In fact, forget the slideshows!

--

Bauchara is a Cleaver wrapped in Shower Ribbon

--

So let's talk about Cleaver.

--

Cleaver turns the following:

title: My Slideshow
output: slideshow.html
--
## Hello, world!
### This is my slideshow

--

Into a slideshow like this slideshow.

Cleaver uses a simple Markdown format.

  • Simply write your slides in Markdown
  • ... and separate them with --

--

Cleaver comes with a stylesheet that looks good by default, but that you can extend at your heart's desire.

--

--

Get Bauchara from NPM

npm install -g bauchara

--

And run it against your shiny new presentation

bauchara path/to/presentation.md

--

If you want watching your md-file and regenerate presentation, just add watch command:

bauchara watch path/to/presentation.md

Next we'll talk about setting up a quick presentation.

--

Each presentation contains metadata, for example:

title: Shower Ribbon + Cleaver = Bauchara
author:
  name: "Vladimir Starkov"
  twitter: "@matmuchrapna"
  url: "http://vstarkov.com"
output: index.html

Let's break this chunk down on the next slide.

--

  • title: The title of your presentation
  • author: Some fields to populate an optional author slide at the end
  • style: An optional external stylesheet to load
  • output: Where to save your file (default: FILENAME-cleaver.html)

--

  • controls: Option to render navigation buttons (default: true)
  • agenda: Option whether or not to insert an agenda slide (similar to a table of contents) after the title (default: false)
  • encoding: A specified content encoding (default: utf-8)

--

  • template: Location of the template used to render the slides (default: default.mustache)
  • layout: Location of the layout template used to render everything (default: layout.mustache)

--

Slides are separated by -- and are written in markdown.

Use h2 to define slide's title (denoted ##)

--

If your metadata contains author information (name, url, twitter), an author slide will be inserted at the end of your presentation.

--

Seriously, that's it. Bauchara is perfect for quick slideshows that you can create using a comfortable format with Shower ribbon template. No extra software or text boxes required.
