mw-slidy provides a system for creating a http://www.w3.org/Talks/Tools/Slidy2/Overview.html#%281%29 HTML-slidy slideshow as a MediaWiki extension. The code is based on the http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:BR/use_S5_slide_system_in_the_mediawiki/en S5 slide system in MediaWiki extension.
In the beginning of the page to be used for a slidy show, simply add the text
this will add a right-aligned label when viewed as a normal mediawiki page. When the label is pressed, a new html is opened that shows the contents as a HTML slidy slide show.
Each level 2 mediawiki title is converted into a new slide.
To change the default theme, use the "theme keyword". E.g. to use the w3c theme, add:
<slidy theme="w3c" />
Building your own theme
Themes are available in the themes/ sub directory. To create your own theme, simply copy one of the existing themes, and change the CSS to your fancies.
Asking for contributions
Please send me your modified themes, and I will be happy to include them into future versions!
