collaborative slide editing made easy

wiki2beamer converts a simple wiki-like syntax to complex LaTeX beamer code. It's written in python and should run on windows and all *nix platforms. Why collaborative? Because you can use it with version control systems. Afraid to loose some LaTeX powers? Don't worry: you can always fall back to plain LaTeX as wiki2beamer is just a preprocessor.

wiki2beamer: Try it with your colleagues! :)


This is how it looks like:

wiki2beamer code input LaTeX code output
==== A simple frame ====

* with a funky
* bullet list
*# and two
*# numbered sub-items
 \frametitle{A simple frame}

    \item with a funky
    \item bullet list
        \item and two
    \item numbered sub-items


Which do you like more? And there is even more cool stuff inside: animations, code listings, text formatting, ... (see the example pdf).



If you want to improve wiki2beamer, don't be afraid. It's not that complicated and we happily accept pull-requests. Just make your changes, and submit a pull-request on GitHub. If you want to make things go faster, you can also document your changes in the man-page sources (asciidoc) and write some unittests so we don't have to do that for you.


wiki2beamer has native packages in the following distributions:


wiki2beamer only requires a working python interpreter. It's supposed to run on CPython 2.3 up to 3.x. If it doesn't, it's a bug that should be filed in the bugtracker.
