# What's Slide Show (S9)?

### What? 

A Free Web Alternative to PowerPoint and Keynote in Ruby

### Getting Started in 1-2-3 Easy Steps

- Step 1: Write your slides in plain text using a wiki-style markup language
- Step 2: Build your slide show using the `slideshow` gem
- Step 3: Open up your slide show in your browser 
- That's it. Showtime!

How it works – Just press F11!

The Slide Show (S9) Ruby gem turns your slides in plain text into a web page that’s an all-in-one-page handout and a live slide show all at once.

$ slideshow build tutorial

=> Preparing slideshow 'tutorial.html'...
=> Done.

Turn your web page into a slide show and your browser into full screen projection with a single push button (F11). Hit the space bar or the right arrow, down arrow or page down key to flip through your slides.

That’s all. It’s that simple.

Slide Show (S9) Template Pack Options

What’s S5?

Simple Standards-based Slide Show System (S5) – Eric Meyer’s (of CSS fame) public domain (free, open source) slide show package inspired by Opera Show and others that works in all modern browsers (without any plugin required because it includes its own slide show machinery in JavaScript).

(Use the s5blank or s5themes template pack to create S5 slide shows.)

What’s S6?

S6 started as a rewrite of Eric Meyer’s S5 using the jQuery JavaScript library — offering easier to understand and easier to extend code. Add plugins, effects and more. Contributions welcome!

(Use the s6blank or s6syntax template pack to create S6 slide shows.)
