Showoff - the best darn presentation software a developer could ever love

From GitHub’s own @schacon, Showoff aims to do presentations developer style.

ShowOff is a Sinatra web app that reads simple configuration files for a presentation. It is sort of like a Keynote web app engine.

Scott’s goals are:

  • show simple text
  • show images
  • show syntax highlighted code
  • re-enact command line interactions
  • do simple transitions (instant, fade, slide in)
  • show a timer - elapsed / remaining
  • perform simple animations of images moving between keyframes
  • show syncronized, hidden notes on another browser (like an iphone)
  • show audience questions / comments (twitter or direct)
  • let audience members go back / catch up as you talk
  • let audience members vote on sections (?)
  • call up a menu of sections/slides at any time to jump around.
