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 farbfeld[0] tools installed to use images in your presentations.


To get a little demo, just type

make && ./sent example

You can navigate with the arrow keys and quit with q.


sent [FILE]

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 escapes @ and #. A presentation file could look like this:



depends on
- Xlib
- Xft
- farbfeld

one slide per paragraph
# This is a comment and will not be part of the presentation
\# This and the next line start with backslashes
