Combining org-mode and the Latex beamer package allows us to write high quality presentations using the power of both emacs org-mode and beamer.
Here’s my customizations:
In beamer terminology, a ‘frame’ is defined as a slide. Each frame in org-beamer-mode
can be specified using a heading (starting with
** depending on the indentation
level that you have set).
Adding code to slides
It is important to set a frame to
fragile when you add code (or anything
your slides. It can be done using the
BEAMER_OPT property. For example:
:PROPERTIES: :BEAMER_OPT: fragile :END:
Splitting into two columns
beamer blocks using the
C-c C-b commands for generating beamer blocks
via org. For the simplest use case where a beamer block is a column, a heading
needs to specified as a
B_block and a
BMCOL. Beamer will then take the heading
of each column as the heading of the block. A minimal example would look like so:
** Heading left :BMCOL:B_block: :PROPERTIES: :BEAMER_col: 0.5 :BEAMER_env: block :END: some text. ** Heading right :BMCOL:B_block: :PROPERTIES: :BEAMER_col: 0.5 :BEAMER_env: block :END: some other text.
org-beamer will simply keep adding columns until the
is present. The value supplied to that property is the percentage width that
the column occupies.
