Pyntor project is a suite of small but usable software programs which are built upon Python and the SDL library (via pygame).
All programs are centered around a web browsing engine (Pyromaniac) and a slide show program (Pyntor itself).
Due to the minimal size and maximum configurability, Pyntor is a nice alternative to conventional presentation programs.
Here are some key features of "Pyntor":
really fast start (try './pyntor '), will use 'script' as default
comes with several components
Pyntor::Slides: slide show
Pyntor::Flags: displays flags (or other images) in a loop
Pyntor::Pyromaniac: HTML browser (not good, but sometimes usable)
Pyntor::Video: run a video either fullscreen or within a slideshow
Pyntor::Blend: Blend effects (e.g. for intros)
run in window ('./pyntor -w')
Slides: Slideshow features:
saving slides statically as to use them elsewhere ('s' key)
toggle between fullscreen and window mode ('f' key)
adjust brightness of background ('+' and '-' keys)
going forth and back ('enter' and 'backspace' keys)
browser launch support on urls, and program launch support
title page (title line above ====, subtitle below)
pages (page titles above ----, page content below)
urls ([url:foo]) and images ([img:foo])
page ranges or single pages out of a document
switch mouse cursor on and off ('m' key)
mark text (left mouse button if mouse cursor is visible)
Pyntor::Pyromaniac: Browser features
works on remote URLs also
scaling of webpages ('+' and '-' keys)
jump to previous/next slide ('p' and 'n' keys)
if HTML pages contain comment about their order
history always available ('alt+left' and 'alt+right' keys)
screenshot ('f12' key)
reload ('r' key)
page width adjustments ('1' and '2' keys)
toggle fullscreen ('f' key)
What's New in This Release:
Several new presentation components were added, including one to use POD as known from Perl files.
All components now include usage information, and a new tool called pyntor-components is available to manage them, including Internet updates via the Get Hot New Stuff technology.
Finally, manual pages were added and the documentation for component authors was revised.
