Subject New Plugin: S5 Slide shows
Date Sun, 31 Oct 2004 18:02:34 GMT
Yesterday I saw a post on Bertrand's Blog 
(http://codeconsult.ch/bertrand/archives/000403.html ) concerning S5: A 
Simple Standards-Based Slide Show System. Over at Burrokeet I have been 
generating slides from Forrest documents for some time.

I couldn't resist merging S5 and my Forrest work together in a plugin. 
The result is quite nifty - wither manually marked up slides (using 
class="slide") or automatically generated slides from .documents (works, 
but needs more development to be really useful).

The plugin is called s5, you can download it from 
http://www.apache.org/~rgardler/testingGround/forrestPlugins/s5.zip

I've put the docs online at 
http://www.apache.org/~rgardler/testingGround/forrestPlugins/s5/ but the 
slideshows don't work due to a bug in the plugin system (I'll fix it soon).

To see the outputs of the slideshow download the plugin to 
forrestcore/plugins and do a "forrest run|site" in 
forrest/plugins/s5/docs (there is also a bug in some of the links in 
slides).

For a quick and easy look at s5 (which is cool) see
