Change Log

  • 2017-02-05
    • Major update with all the work done by Ottmar Gobrecht (ottmar [dot] gobrecht [at] gmail [dot] com,
    • Improved slide handling: Since slides are indicated by headers you are relative inflexible regarding the header levels and sizes on vertical (nested) slides - they are normally simply to small
    • New conf option horizontal_slide_level: Headers on this level or above starting a horizontal slide. Levels below starting a vertical (nested) slide - no effect on slides, which are indicated by alternative slide indicators
    • New conf option enlarge_vertical_slide_headers: Increase headers on slides below horizontal_slide_level - no effect on slides, which are indicated by alternative slide indicators
    • New alternative slide indicator:
      • ----> opens a new slide with default transition in default speed (open previous slides will be closed implicitly)
      • Full example - parameters are parsed dynamically like in CSS, the parameter order is not important: ---- orange wiki:dokuwiki-128.png 10% repeat bg-slide zoom-in fade-out slow no-footer ---->
        • All possible HTML color names and codes are supported: red, #f00, #ff0000, rgb(255,0,0), rgba(255,0,0,0.5), hsl(0,100%,50%), hsla(0,100%,50%,0.5)
        • Background images are recognized case insensitive by the endings gif, png, jpg, jpeg, svg
        • Background image size is recognized by postfix % and px or by keywords auto, contain and cover (cover is the default in Reveal.js) - example: 10% or 250px
        • Background image position is recognized by keywords top, bottom, left, right, center (center is the default in Reveal.js) - examples: top left, bottom center
        • Background image repeat is recognized by the keyword repeat (no-repeat is the default in Reveal.js)
        • Background transition: prefix bg- followed by none, fade, slide, convex, concave or zoom
        • Slide transition: none, fade, slide, convex, concave or zoom followed by optional postfix -in or -out for different transitions on one slide
        • Transition speed: default, fast, slow
      • ---->> opens a new slide container for vertical (nested) slides and a new slide with the given options - example: ---- red zoom ---->>
      • The next ---->> will close the previous container (and slide) implicitly
      • Technical details:
        • In the rendering the slide mode changes from “headers driven” to “special horizontal rule driven” - headers are no longer interesting in this mode for slide changes
        • You can create of course a whole presentation with this alternative slide indicator
        • if you want to leave this slide mode you need a way to explicit close a slide or container:
        • <<---- closes a slide container (and possibly open slide inside)
        • <---- closes a slide
    • Improved existing background indicator: {{background>orange bg-zoom}}
      • allowing now all options from the new slide indicator (see above)
    • Improved wiki page rendering:
      • New conf option show_slide_details (default on): Show slide details on wiki page: start of slide and options, background preview, start of notes
    • Improved section editing:
      • Slide background definition or alternative slide indicators must be noted before the headers/slide content
      • The normal section editing has the problem, that it is starting on the headers, so the background definition or alternative slide indicators are on the wrong section
      • With the section editing improvement the whole slide can be edited at once including the background definitions
    • New conf option for the start button:
      • You can now select between the default one(start_button.png), the one from the s5 plugin (start_button.screen.png) and an own one (start_button.local.png), which is upgrade safe and must be copied into the plugin directory
      • If you are able to edit the page, then a export to PDF link is rendered under the start slideshow button - this is the reveal.js default export and works only in Chromium and Chrome - more infos here
    • Introducing new syntax for speaker notes:
      • <notes> - no parameters
      • No changes on wiki pages
      • On a slideshow the content is wrapped into <aside class="notes">
      • Lists in notes are always NOT incremental, because the list is unvisible and you would have to press the next key for each entry without any obvious effect
    • Introducing new syntax for fragments:
      • <fragment> for inline usage (only formatting and substitutions supported)
      • <fragment-block> for any wiki content
      • <fragment-list> to overwrite the global option build_all_lists (if false)
      • <no-fragment-list> to overwrite the global option build_all_lists (if true)
      • Support for style and index where possible - see also the source code file example_presentation.dokuwiki and this reveal online demo
    • Improved blockquote handling:
      • The nesting is suppressed on the slideshow to support the way Reveal is showing notes
    • Improved DokuWiki text formatting on the slides:
      • Underlined text is now underlined and no longer italic
      • Subscript and superscript are now a bit smaller than the default text
    • New conf option for image borders:
      • In DokuWiki in the default theme images have no borders
      • In Reveal the images have borders
      • Now you can configure this globally in the plugin settings and since all options are overwritable per wiki page you can have different settings on different pages/presentations
    • New conf options for slide size:
      • Default size in Reveal.js is 960×700
      • Sometimes you need to align this if you have content that does not fit on this size
      • As all options this one is overwritable per page/presentation - see also example_presentation.dokuwiki
    • New theme dokuwiki:
      • This is a copy of the theme solarized: the only change is the aligned background color, which match the background color of the default DokuWiki theme
      • Images are looking good with activated borders
