[IPython-dev] Slideshow mode for IPython 2.0

I used IPython-2.0.0-dev extensively in making slides these past few months. (I used 2.0 because I had better luck with getting speaker notes to render, though it is still inconsistent and I don’t know why.)

I think the notebook you linked to is no longer relevant though. These days, to make my slides, I just run
ipython nbconvert my_notebook.ipynb --to slides
from the command line and it works great.
reveal.js does need to be in that directory.

I definitely have a wish list of things I’d like to see developed with the slide conversion (for example, I’ve found styling the slides to be impossibly difficult.) I think it’s also confusing because this is such a new feature and has changed so many times since it was first introduced that it’s easy to find things like the link below that are no longer needed (and probably don’t work anymore). I suppose that’s the price of working on the bleeding edge.

Subject: [IPython-dev] Slideshow mode for IPython 2.0

Just wondering if anybody has taken the slideshow mode and made it work
with IPython notebook 2.0.0 yet? I did try the notebook at
I suspect the internals have changed sufficiently between v1.x and
to prevent it working with the latest version.

Looks like the repo hasn't been updated in a while, so wondered if anybody
was working on this?
