WHAT IS IT?:
pylize is a Python script that generates a set of HTML files that make up an on-screen presentation from a master file. The HTML files can be viewed with any CSS-aware browser. The master file contains the text for all the slides and some additional information like title, author etc. pylize can also create a template master file for you.
Python >= 2.0 HTMLgen PIL (optional)
* generate a template master document * create a set of HTML slides from the master document * automatic creation of the table of contents * a nice CSS driven slide layout, including logo, navigation links, progress-bar etc. * easy changing of layout through templates * all information for a presentation in one master file, but configurable through a per-user options file * fully localized
This is the first public release. I have tried to write the script as portable as possible, but I have currently no access to a Windows or MAC OS environment. That's why this is a beta release. I would like to ask interested individuals to get and try the software on different platforms and inform me of any problems. Any other feedback is also always welcome!
