What does ezprez do?

Let's you write simple python scripts to generate web presentations/slideshows

Features & Roadmap

Simple class based api

The api iteself uses native python classes to create presentations in a short script that's easily editable

No web experience needed

Since this is a pure python API you can write web presentations without knowing HTML

Backed on a reliable web framework

Webslides powers this project and is a well-tested and stable web framework.

Why should I use ezprez?

Ezprez is the simplest API for writing web presentations without needing explicit knowledge of web development. If you are looking to create powerpoint style presentations python-pptx or the google slides api is better suited for this job.

Who is ezprez for?

  • People who want an easy way to create web presentations without editing html
  • People who know python but not web development technologies


From PyPi

  1. Run pip install ezprez

From source

  1. Clone this repo: (put github/source code link here)
  2. Run pip install . or sudo pip3 install .in the root directory


For just plain text slides the easiest way to get started is just using the Slide and Presentation objects:

from ezprez.core import Slide, Presentation

# Create a slide object (don't need to assign it to a variable or anything it's added to presentation on instantiation)
Slide("This is the slide title", "this is some content")

# Setup the actual presentation settings
presentation_url = "" # The URL the presentation will be hosted at
prez = Presentation("This is the presentation title", "This is the presentation description", presentation_url)

# Export the presentation in the current directory at /Presentation
prez.export(".", folder_name="Presentation")

There will then be a folder called Presentation, and inside the index.html file will contain your presentation. Just put that up on a static hosting service and you're good to go.
