[IPython-dev] Slideshow mode for IPython 2.0

People, you are mistaken two things... three in fact...

1) IPython slides, generated from IPython.nbconvert using reveal.js, static
presentations. About the customization, you can check some of my blog post
about it: http://www.damian.oquanta.info/categories/slideshow.html. There
are a lot of things to improve, and it will be discussed soon here and in
proper issues.

2) Slideshow mode: This is a js hack from Mathias, which let you see the
IPython notebook as a slideshow, but it is live, I mean you can run code in
the slideshow itself... and the installation step are described here
(possibly outdated, and I don't know if it is IPython 2.0 compatible, I did
not check it yet):

3) Live_Reveal IPython extension, which gives you an slideshow powered by
reveal.js, but not static as IPython slides, instead they are lives, I mean
you can execute code as with the slidemode. This is still in development
and working in IPython 1.x... I am not making the adjustment to use it in
IPython 2.0: https://github.com/damianavila/live_reveal

Hope it is more clear right now...
