We're pleased to announce the release of RISE 5.1.0!

RISE allows you show your Jupyter notebooks rendered as an executable Reveal.js-based slideshow. It is your very same notebook but presented in a slidy way!

What are the new goodies for this release?

  • autolaunch config option to enable immediate launch of the slideshow view as soon as you open your notebook, very useful to use at mybinder.
  • smart exec allows you to execute cells and then proceed to the next cell WHEN the context permits, pretty similar to the native experience in the notebook view but it takes into consideration the slideshow view limitations and particularities
  • auto_select allows you to automatically select the first (or first code) cell any time you either move to a new slide, subslide or when you show (or hide) a new fragment
  • new overlay, header, background and footer customizable options
  • customizable CSS
  • keyboard customization through the notebook keyboard manager
  • new keyboard shortcuts to toggle cells as slide, subslides and fragments

For more information about all these new enhancements/features, please check the usage and the customization sections in the docs.

How you can play with it?
