Introducing Slippy - HTML Presentations

Slippy is a HTML Presentation library written with jQuery, it takes a html file in and plays it in any browser.

It is optimal for programming-related talks since it includes a syntax highlighter and is very easy to use since it's just standard html markup with a few classes to enable specific functions.

If you are making a talk about Javascript, it can even execute your code samples live and displays alert() boxes nicely instead of using the ugly browser dialog, which -I tried it today- works quite well to prove your point interactively.

You can find the sources on github, view the example slide deck which includes some documentation or view the slides for the small talk I gave today about Javascript Events on my Slippy slide repository.

Obviously feedback is very much welcome and even though it's not perfect yet, I hope it'll be useful to others. More docs and styling fixes (the dark grey background wasn't too visible on a projector, my bad) should come soon as I have more talks planned, and the slide repository page will receive some love as well when I have time.

You saved the day! A year ago I was searching for such a plugin-like software in order to banish PowerPoint and Latex Beamer in favor of a open standard technology. I once have been experiementing with SVG and a Inkscape extension wich wasn't that easy and smooth.

The PDF rendering seems broken with phantomjs 1.2.0, and 1.1.0 gives annoying layout errors with the tutorial presentation.
Did I miss fixes, or should I try fixing it myself?
