I want to use org-mode for presentations within emacs.

There seem to be a couple of libraries for this linked to by:

org-present and org-presie seem like the candidates, but neither seem to support the delayed revealing of child entries.

Example

I have an org file like

* One
** child1
** child2
* two
** child1
** child2

I want to be able to go through displays like

* One

then

* One
** child1

then

* One
** child1
** child2

then

* Two

then

* Two
** Child1

then

* Two
** Child1
** Child2

You can export presentations to html or latex, and present them there. That not only looks better (most of the time), but it's also much simpler to share your deck with non-Emacsen people.

Check out, for example, org-reveal and org-beamer. Both of these options allow you to transition and go through displays in the way you want.

If you really want to stick to Emacs and Org Mode, check out the demo-it package.

  • Yep, beamer or reveal are in a good suggestion for many use cases. It kind of loses emacs street-cred though. I'm sure I could make up some other reasons that emacs might be useful for presentations like demos and such like, but imagine they are really just excuses for "this is cool". – Att Righ May 15 '17 at 14:39

    demo-it looks quite nice. It looks like a general purpose automation framework that could be particularly useful for recording screencasts etc. – Att Righ May 15 '17 at 14:44
