Hello,

  I've started a RedCloth mini cookbook collecting how-tos, recipes and
F.A.Qs.

  How-tos in the mini cookbook so far include:

   o How to use the redcloth command line tool
   o How to turn off/disable hard line breaks
   o How to turn off span caps
   o How to extend Textile with your own rules
   o How to extend Textile with your own tags
   o How to find out more (References)

    More @ http://rubybook.ca/2008/08/16/redcloth

   Cheers.

Interesting you should mention this. I was thinking about combining S5
and Redcloth the other week and did a post on my blog about it, only to
find near the end of writing my post (when I was searching for another
reference site) that you covered something similar with your S9 work
(There is a link back to your slideshow gem at the bottom of the post I
made).

My approach was slightly different, as I was defining slides /
annotations using the RedCloth 4.x custom block tag / formatter system.

For those who are interested, the post is at
http://jasonearl.com/blog/creating_s5_redcloth_pre...

I've also covered a very basic how to on using LaTeX at
http://jasonearl.com/blog/latex_pdf_formatting_in_...

Feel free to link to it if you want (or copy and paste the content).

Unfortunately I need to get round to making a lightweight comment system
on the blog as it's currently published to static markup (because I
don't the overhead of Rails. I'll probably make a Thin Serverlet, or
Camping/Merb system for comments). If anyone wants to give any feedback,
just mail me :-)

On a side note, congrats btw Jason for the 4.0.2 release :-)

Jase.

Hello Jase,

  Wow. Great blog postings about S5 and creating PDFs with RedCloth. I
will add some new entries to the RedCloth Coobook with
references/links to your posts.

   Some minor update:

> There is a slideshow gem on RubyForge that works in a similar way. However this is using 
the old 3.x version of RedCloth.

  I've updated the slideshow gem to use the latest and greates
RedCloth gem shortly after the official release (sometime in early
August).

  Also note that I've started a mailing list/forum to encourage
sharing of insight, code, etc. for web slide show projects (using
Textile). For example, besides the slideshow (S9) gem there's also the
CodeX gem that uses S5 and Textile started by Pragmatic Dave and
packaged using rubyigen (the Ruby Generator Framework) by Dr. Nic.
You're invited to join @ http://groups.google.com/group/webslideshow

  Cheers.

PS: You can create S5 presentations with the slideshow gem using the
-s5 switch e.g.

$ slideshow -s5 microformats

If you don't flip the s5 switch you'll get a S6 slideshow (that's
basically a modern version/rewrite of S5 in jQuery).

Here's an example: http://slideshow.rubyforge.org/s5/jquery.html
And here's the Textile source:
http://slideshow.rubyforge.org/svn/samples/jquery.textile

K, I'll change that, I just saw the release date being before RedCloth
4.x I think assumed it was 3.x

I've joined. I'll need to have a look at CodeX at some point myself.
