Slideshow is a kiosk-style application for showing text, image, and video in a loop on monitors and projectors. It is not meant for situations where interactive control is required, but when the content is continuously looping for a long time. The content is updated through a Web GUI. The application is split into two packages, the backend and frontend. The backend is written in C++ and OpenGL. and the frontend uses Python. Currently. the frontend is very GNU/Linux specific and will not run on any other platform, but is meant to be as platform independent as possible, as long as it handles OpenGL.
LiPPGen, the Literate-Programming-based Presentation Generator, takes a standard Literate Program (with LaTeX as the documentation language) as input and lets the instructor comfortably generate presentation slides for each code chunk. It then assembles the provided slide texts and the code chunks and turns them into a browser-based presentation. The presentations feature scrollable code chunk listings, primitive syntax highlighting, and line breaking within listings. LiPPGen expects the source file to be formatted in noweb's Literate Programming style.
