… into navigable, page-based HTML presentations that look like this…
Left- and right-arrow navigates between pages. No bells and whistles - just a cross-platform, already-shared, Markdown-based presentation!
Before you follow any links or think of installing, beware! The original version uses a very tiny font for code, so tiny that I think it’s unusable. So I’ve made a new version and modified the CSS. Problem is, if you follow any links into the original repo or doc, you’ll wind up at links and instructions for the original, “tiny-code” version. So make sure that you install from here!
In fact, you know what? Before going any further, just drag this link: Toggle Gistdeck into your browser toolbar or whatever right now and use that to toggle the appearance of a Gist. If you decide afterwards that it’s junk, just delete it.
What it Does
Really, all I wanted to do was tweaking a font size. But it’s never that easy, is it?
- First I had to accept a pull request that changed the font size. I was going to to it myself, but then I noticed that someone has has a pull request waiting for 10 months(!) to make the exact same change, so I took his.
- While I was at it, I tweaked the directory structure a bit to shoehorn things into my Jekyll installation without polluting the filesystem.
- Then I had to change READMEs etc. to point to my versions, while making it clear that
- I’m not trying to take credit, and
- that it’s a modified version.
Look at the commits made to my Gistdeck branch since 70b5caa to see the fix, and what I’ve had to do to point to the correct files.
I’d like to make some changes, such as…
- Parameterizing the colors (perhaps via SCSS?) Purple is OK, but it gets old fast…
- Structural tweaks (if possible) to DRY the code out w.r.t. file locations. I should be able to rehost to another server without having to change so many URLs in so many call sites.
If you have any ideas, please, enter a bug fix or enhancement on my repo.
It’s a presentation tool. Go forth and teach!
