Zippl Presentation Tool (Qt, C++)

Feature state

Hackweek V


The idea of a new presentation tool called Zippl is of course inspired by the new and breathtaking tool Prezi [1] which is available online.

The idea of Zippl is to implement something similar as Prezi, but as a desktop tool based on the Qt toolkit which brings the perfect modules with it.

A presentation in Zippl will not be one page after the other, but a huge canvas on which spots of information lie around. These spots are the actual presentation portions and can contain (for the first attempt) out of text, geometrical items such as boxes and pixmaps. During a presentation, Zippl moves from one spot to the next, of course in a very cool animated way.

Another concept of Zippl will be the "more details" idea. If the presentation goes to show more details on a spot, it dives through the spot to another one.

A Zippl-Presentation will be written up in a XML file specifying the spots with its content such as text, graphics and stuff. Spots can be nested to reflect the detail thing.

Zippl XML files should be of easy structure and can be written manually, later GUI editing functionality could be added easily.

There is no code yet for Zippl. The project is happy about any help from everybody who is interested in programming Qt and C++ or giving input on this stuff.

Looks really cool!  Any chance of integrating this with koffice?  I think if each page was a single flake on a big canvas and then you tell it to move between flakes it would be really easy to make in a GUI. Also, if you use koffice you could take advantage of all the koffice objects available, the koffice ui work, and the koffice animation framework for anaimations within "pages".

Another thing that would be cool is if you had a way to zoom out and see all the pages, then click the page to zoom back in.

Sounds cool, need to see it in action :)

The GUI reminds me much of my upcoming vym (view your mind) version

Have you seen JessyInk? 
http://code.google.com/p/jessyink/  It is just a plugin for Inkscape, but still very cool (and the output is SVG+JavaScript viewable in browser :-))

Ah, I forgot to say that the package is ready in GNOME:Apps repo.

Well i did a try of JessyInk. For me it is not straight forward.

Did not managed to create any presentation, though i get to

know what is it capable of. First i need to play around with Inskape

more. I prefer Gimp for graphocs, but it's a quite different from Inskape.

Though, I like very much idea that Jessyink presentation could be presented

on any computer that has a broswer.
