sent is a simple plaintext presentation tool.
sent 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.
You need Xlib and Xft to build sent and the farbfeld1 tools installed to use images in your presentations.
sent is built with the Meson and Ninja build system. Simply run the
meson build ninja -C build/
sent will be compiled and available in
build/sent. If you wish to install
sent, simply run
ninja -C build/ install
You may need to execute the above command as sudo. To uninstall
ninja -C build/ uninstall
If you wish to install
sent to a different directory than the default one,
you can execute this instead of the first command, and replace
where you want
meson build --prefix=/usr
To get a little demo, just type
If FILE is omitted or equals
-, stdin will be read. Produce image slides by
@ in front of the filename as a single paragraph. Lines
# will be ignored. A
\ at the beginning of the line escapes
#. A presentation file could look like this:
sent @nyan.png depends on - Xlib - Xft - farbfeld sent 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?
