Tools to quickly build alternate versions

Registered by Dylan McCall on 2009-11-20

For Lucid, we need to provide tools for quickly building alternative slideshows for different Ubuntu derivatives, for example Kubuntu, UNR and Xubuntu. This should be possible in the same source tree, with minimal duplication of information.
Using a static html generator such as AymCMS or Hyde may be sensible.

Whiteboard

TODO: (Meerkat). Rejig build and test scripts. Now that source files are reorganized, testing tool doesn't need to build anything.

DONE: Pass variables like slide interval, looping and transition type to slideshow.js.

DONE: Merged Roman's newly touched up kubuntu-slideshow branch.

DONE: Localization stuff needs to be fixed! Merge all slides into one pot file for each derivative.

DONE: Test scripts (eg: Slideshow.py) need to be adjusted to open slides from new places. (This won't affect other implementations).

DONE?: Must reduce duplication as much as possible, but derivatives should be customizable. Consider the slides/link directory to be a global resource directory (with slideshow.js, jquery and any css rules required by slideshow.js), with individual slideshow derivatives providing their own custom resource directories as well, with different styling (including dimensions of the slideshow and possibly different transitions).
