Slideshow (S9) Update - New Mediawiki Markup, Textile Optional, More Plugins (Tables, Snippets, etc


I’ve pushed a new slideshow (S9) gem [1] , that is, v2.3.0. What’s

I’ve added support for Mediawiki markup - thanks to the wikicloth
[2] gem. Use the extensions .mediawiki, .wiki or .mw, for example, to
write your slideshows in Mediawiki.

Note, the wikicloth gem is optional. To use it install it “manually”
e.g. issue:

 $ gem install wikicloth

I’ve also “downgraded” Textile support to optional due to
installation issues. Starting w/ version v2.3.0 to use Textile install
the RedCloth Textile library “manually” first e.g. issue:

 $ gem install RedCloth

Lastly I’ve added some more sample plugins/helpers, that is, tables
(left, right, etc.) [3] and snippets (help, etc.) [4]. To install all
plugins issue:

$ slideshow install plugins     # or install plugins/helpers

individually e.g.
$ slideshow install tables
$ slideshow install snippets

That’s it. Questions? Comments? Cheers.
