Lab-friday – from ASCIIDOC to HTML 5 slides
Last lab-friday, Anders Nawroth made the neo4j manual toolchain produce deck.js HTML 5 presentations instead of the Neo4j Manual.
The interesting part isn’t really the example itself, but that the toolchain now is able to generate HTML directly, instead of the normal DocBook XML output. This can be used in any context where you want to publish (tested) code, graphs or integrated consoles etc. on a web page.
He is generating the slideshow at http://docs.neo4j.org/lab/decks/, even containing the live console (click on the “Console” button in the slide), like
The source can be found at https://github.com/nawroth/manual/blob/deckjs/src/main/resources/slides/example/index.txt, feel free to fork and improve. We hope to bring this into the Neo4j Manual master toolchain soon, so material can be even better reused in other formats. Also, the toolchain itself is explained in detail at http://docs.neo4j.org/chunked/snapshot/community-docs.html .
Cool stuff Anders!
