Biggie is a tool for making presentations that
makes it easy to make presentations with big, and
publish with one click. Unlike Big, Biggie does the trick of turning
slides, provided you separate slides with
---, the ‘hr’ shorthand.
I want to make Big accessible to everyone.
It’s easy to switch big-themes -
there’s a dropdown, and automatic preview. The
themes up there are a little ugly - zero is zero -
but it’s easy to contribute one!
The coolest part is that you can publish with one click, which is just standing on the
shoulders of giants - it posts a Gist to GitHub
and links you to its page on Mike Bostock’s bl.ocks.org.
The tech is basic; CodeMirror (browserified thanks to Max Ogden!),
browserify, hbsfy for
templating, marked for Markdown parsing.
This was generally written from 12-1:30am last night
so is still rough around a few edges - which you can help with!
