[IPython-dev] Slides on nbviewer!!!

That's an amazing work thanks!

The ability to turn notebooks into presentations and, now, to share those
slides seamlessly through nbviewer.org is a *big* selling point for the
ipython/jupiter project.

I only have a minor request. Is there a way to disable the slide-to-slide
animation, I (and some other colleagues) find it quite distracting?

Finally, if I have to dream, having the possibility to dump the slides into
a powerpoint/libreoffice presentation would really integrate in a bigger
workflow of creating presentations and reports, not necessary (or
completely) computationally centered.

I recently started using IguanaTex[1] and it allows me to copy/paste latex
equations from the notebook into powerpoint and it is huge time saver for
me since I write the equations in a notebook while writing the code and
then I can copy them to powerpoint and have latex-grade output. This same
approach could allow a simple notebook to powerpoint/libreoffice converter.

> For instance, I have a notebook from an old talk here:
> http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/damianavila/hackperiodismo/blob/master/Hackeando_el_periodismo.ipynb
> But in fact, I made this talk using the slideshow capabilities of the

> and voila!! You have a working slideshow in just 1 seconds ;-)

> Finally, to answer some of the upcoming questions, you CAN NOT execute

> to check RISE: https://github.com/damianavila/RISE, and use it locally
> (we can later talk about a *cloud* deployment, but that's another
> discussion ;-)
> Thanks.
