Giving a Text Based Slide Presentation in Vim without Plugins

Giving a Text Based Slide Presentation in Vim without Plugins

In this video we'll add a few lines to our vimrc file so we can easily cycle between slides. We'll use Goyo too, but that's optional.

While preparing for a talk I’m giving soon about using the command line and terminal I wanted a quick and easy way to show text based slides within Vim.

After a bit of fiddling around, this was the end result. It’s a few lines of code that can be dropped into your .vimrc file and technically it requires no plugins.

Although in this case I am using Goyo to make it look better. You can replicate what Goyo does without using it by setting a few stock vimrc options if you don’t want to use Goyo.
