Presentacular adds script.aculo.us visual effects to slide shows created with S5. It has the same advantages than S5 for creating slide shows: printer-friendly version, simple and semantic markup and portable across the most modern browsers.
First of all you’ll have to create an S5 slide show. If you are new to S5, A Basic Primer in Using S5 can be useful to you.
<h2 class="pulsate">Adding effects is easy</h2>
The effect duration is also controlled with CSS classes, using extra arguments. You have to append an underscore
_ to the effect name followed by the effect duration in seconds. For example, this code will shake during 2 seconds:
<p class="shake_2">Control the effect duration</p>
You can add effects to lists that are incrementally displayed:
<ul class="incremental appear_0.5"> <li>Adding effects</li> <li>to incrementally displayed</li> <li>lists</li> </ul>
The following are the available effects. You can use them as the names of the CSS classes
