Power Point / Keynote presentation in website

Hi, I’d like to know how can I do something like that entrance:
http://www.ibderma.com.br/index_02.html

I think it can be done with Power Point or Keynote (even better if
possible,
cause I’m on a mac), but I have no idea how, if anyone can help me I
appreciate it.

Thank you,
Rodrigo

Ps.: I love this community, every question I’ve asked so far, someone
helped
me =), thank you.

That is not really a Rails question, but the effect is done using
Flash. Please don’t do it, it is horrible to have a site that relies
on flash. Think of those with limited bandwidth. Also it will not
work on many mobiles, and some users disable flash due to the security
issues.

Hi all,

still fighting with incredible ruby slowness with RoR development. Not
only tests, but whole development takes
a lot of time, getting eg. 2000ms to complete page render (with mysql5).
Trying various versions of ruby (1.8.7, 1.9.1, 1.9.2), but
still the same. Using mbp late 2009, 4gb ram, osx 10.6.7

anyone experiencing the same?

thx
tom

Install either
rails-footnotes – http://rubygems.org/gems/rails-footnotes
or
new relic rpm – http://newrelic.com/

to collect real data on where the time is being taken. It could be DB,
it could be rendering, it could be a combination of things.

Ya, I was just looking at the source and found out it was flash… But
how
can I do the same thing with Rails and without flash?

Thank you very much, tell me one more thing, can I do that javascript
part
with only ruby language?

Most of the effects can either be achieved with CSS3 (animations) or
Javascript, Rails is all about the serverside, these kinds of
animations are clientside and thus need clientside scripting. Keep in
mind that CSS3 animation support is very limited at this time in most
of the current browsers (Safari seems to be way ahead of everyone else
on the animation front). Also, it’s not going to be a trivial task to
achieve that kind of animation.

For what it’s worth, I myself and quite a few people I know (even non-
developers) hate this kind of site where you have to wait for about 15
seconds before the actual content appears. It doesn’t add anything
useful to the site itself, except for a delay in getting to the
information you want. Animation should be an added value, not a means
of being fancy and dandy.

However, looking back at your original question (and the title of this
thread), you are looking for Powerpoint/Keynote-like transitions. As I
originally responded, both of these can be achieved with CSS3 (most
performant on mobile devices) or Javascript (works cross-browser).

Hi,

I actually use keynote to prototype all my applications with the
exception of mobile apps. I use dashboard for mobile apps. The front
end technology my team uses is SproutCore and the animation framework is
awesome.

SproutCore provides good cross browser support and would highly
recommend it. Check out the following demos and git account for sample
code:

animate.strobeapp.com
animatedemo.strobeapp.com
http://guidesdev.sproutcore.com/animate.html
github.com/thecodeboutique

Furthermore, we will be releasing training material for SproutCore on
the front end and rails on the backend shortly at sproutcoreonrails.com.
I will keep the community up to date when I can provide more
information.

Kind Regards,

You can use jquery, jqueryui, jquery mobile (although that part is
alpha) and pretty much theme your site to house a lot of what is shown
at that site. I saw modal dialogues, fades, etc. that can easily be
accomplished with javascript. Keep in mind that you probably want some
javascript to load at the bottom of your page so that your html loads
first. I wouldn’t trust CSS3 yet as there are huge issues with most
browsers for animation.

Some of the drawing features of html5 are not supported by some
browsers, but you can get an html5 shiv installed to cover browsers like
IE8, although IE9 I believe supports html5 draw rendering.

Otherwise, that site you listed above is in my opinion “so so”. I don’t
like flash driven sites anymore and while they can look great, they can
also take considerable time to load, and encounter issues that affect
the entire movie, making the site unusable. If you did incorporate
flash you’d have to provide a backup for people that didn’t use flash.

And mobile is extremely fun to code if you get around to doing that. I
like JQmobile a lot as it is very easy to use.

Good luck.
