LibreOffice Impress Ideas

While going through Hacker News links, I stumbled upon Sequence.js – a jQuery Slider Plugin.

I initially thought that it’s useless on the web because it’s a bit on the heavy side. I even noticed that Firefox 10 started to slow down. It’s an awesome idea, really, but practical uses on the web are few and far in between.

Sequence is the jQuery slider plugin with infinite style. It provides the complete functionality for a website slider without forcing you to use a set theme. In fact, Sequence has no in-built theme, leaving you complete creative control to build a unique slider using only CSS3 — no jQuery knowledge required!

That’s when I realized I saw something similar before, but aimed at presentations. It’s Prezi by Canonical’s Design Team.

Prezi is something that I would love to use, but won’t simply because it’s Flash-based. If you haven’t seen Prezi at work, try looking into the What is Ubuntu? demo. Also awesome, but again… I’m allergic to Flash.

As for Sequence.js, it’ll be great if the LibreOffice Impress team integrates it into their software. Although it’s just jQuery + CSS3, implementing it into their code might be a bit hard. For now, I’ll stick with static presentations and hope that it shows up soon on Impress.

  1. Sorry, do not use PHP code since the problem is not the end but in the front.You uslhod use regular expressions from the front side, for example:The solution is to strip the tags on the front end with JS, using a regular expression. You can put the following code in line 92 of the second part of script.js:text.replace(\\u,”);Just mention it in case someone uses it in a production environment.Again, thanks for sharing.A healthy and happy Christmas and prosperous new year to all PD: Thanks Martin

  2. Prezi provides a pretty powerful editor ad-hoc for this ZUI paradigm. Not sure a standar slide base software could easily take advantage of the ZUI paradigm.
