# wiki2beamer

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! :)

## Syntax

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  \begin{frame} \frametitle{A simple frame} \begin{itemize} \item with a funky \item bullet list \begin{enumerate} \item and two \item numbered sub-items \end{enumerate} \end{itemize} \end{frame} 

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

## Contribute

If you want to improve wiki2beamer, don't be afraid. It's not that complicated and we happily accept patches. Just make your changes, and submit a patch (or publish a git branch so we can pull in your changes). If you want to make things go faster, you can also document your changes in the man-page sources (docbook xml) and write some unittests so we don't have to do that for you.

We use git for version control. The clone URL is:

## Dependencies/Compatibility

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.
