Slide Show (S9) 1.2.1 Update - Quick Starter Templates, Takahashi, etc.

Hello,

I've uploaded a new slideshow gem (aka Slide Show (S9)), that is, v1.2.1.

What's Slide Show (S9)?

A Ruby gem that lets you create slide shows and author slides in
plain text using a wiki-style markup language that's easy-to-write and
easy-to-read. The Slide Show (S9) project also collects and welcomes
themes and ships "out-of-the-gem" with built-in support for
"loss-free" gradient vector graphics themes.

What's new?

* Added -q/--quick [MANIFEST] command that lets you use quick starter
templates [1][2][3][4]. Example, to try the impress.js template pack
use these three steps:

Step 1: Fetch template pack (including quick starter samples)

$ slideshow -f impress.js

Step 2: Generate quick starter sample source (in Markdown)

$ slideshow -q impress.js

Step 3: Generate sample slideshow

$ slideshow -t impress.js impress.js.text

Showtime! Open up the impress.js.html page. That's it.

* Added a --takahashi option that lets you use // between words or on
its own line to break up slides. Example:

Welcome // Aloha // Bienvenue // Benvenuto
//
Vítáme tĕ
//
Shalom
//
Ahlan'wa sahla
//
Bem-vindo // Bem-vinda // Bienvenido
//
Willkommen // Welkom // Velkommen // Wolkom

That's all. If you have any question or comments, let me know.

Hi Gerald,

thank you for slideshow.
i'm fond of the T shortcut (outline), but i wish that the outline has
links to each slide so i can start/jump anywhere (using the outline as
my toc so to speak)

thanks again for slideshow
best regards -botp

Thanks for your comments.

For the --takahashi option I plan to automaticaly add two css classes
per slide to make styling easier:

For example,

welcome

will get the two css classes:

taka7 (7 letters)
taka-welcome

and, for example,

(1)

will get the css classes:

taka3 (3 letters)
taka-_1_

and so on. Cheers.
