Feature #309584, revision 1
Title: Zippl Presentation Tool (Qt, C++)

Requested by: Klaas Freitag (kfreitag)

The idea of a new presentation tool called Zippl is of course inspired by the
new and breathtaking tool Prezi [1] which is available online. The idea of
Zippl is to implement something similar as Prezi, but as a desktop tool based
on the Qt toolkit which brings the perfect modules with it. A presentation in
Zippl will not be one page after the other, but a huge canvas on which spots of
information lie around. These spots are the actual presentation portions and
can contain (for the first attempt) out of text, geometrical items such as
boxes and pixmaps. During a presentation, Zippl moves from one spot to the
next, of course in a very cool animated way. Another concept of Zippl will be
the "more details" idea. If the presentation goes to show more details on a
spot, it dives through the spot to another one. A Zippl-Presentation will be
written up in a XML file specifying the spots with its content such as text,
graphics and stuff. Spots can be nested to reflect the detail thin

Zippl XML files should be of easy structure and can be written manually, later
GUI editing functionality could be added easily. There is no code yet for
Zippl. The project is happy about any help from everybody who is interested in
programming Qt and C++ or giving input on this stuff. [1]
