Slide Shows in Vim

Vroom lets you create your slides in a single file using a Wiki-like style, much like Spork and Sporx do. The difference is that your slides don’t compile to HTML or JavaScript or XUL. They get turned into a set of files that begin with ‘0’, like ‘03’ or ‘07c’ or ‘’.

The slides are named in alphabetic order. That means you can bring them all into a Vim session with the command vim 0*. vroom –vroom does exactly that.

Vroom takes advantage of Vim’s syntax highlighting. It also lets you run slides that contain code.

Since Vim is an editor, you can change your slides during the show.
