picoSlides | jQuery plugin to embed iframe-free slideshare presentations
picoSlides is a responsive jQuery plugin for IFRAME-free embedding and simple navigation of SlideShare presentations.
A jQuery plugin for directly embedding SlideShare presentations without using IFRAMEs. It leverages SlideShare’s oEmbed API to offer a responsive interface that enables optimal use of bandwidth and simple slide navigation. Two features set this plugin apart:
It has got the following features :-
- Adaptive slide images: fetches device-appropriate versions of images depending on the dimensions of the slideset container. See the imgMaxWidth option.
- Lazy slide loading: the first slide image is used as a preview poster of the whole presentation, a la YouTube. The remaining slides are downloaded only if the user hits the ‘Next’ button.
Compatible with all modern browsers: tested in IE8+, Android 2.1+, iPhone 3+ and various versions of other browsers (Firefox/IceWeasel and Chromium).
Auto-detects Lazy Load and Holder*: ensures smooth lazy loading of the first slide image. Includes options that control Holder’s theme and Lazy Load’s behaviour.
Highly customisable: from slide aspect ratio, through button size to callback functions; there’s an option for nearly everything.
Responsive design: by default, slide image size depends on the width of the container and thumb-friendly buttons are provided.
Bandwidth efficient: slide images can be made adaptive. Also, only the cover slide is shown at first. The remaining slides are “lazy loaded”.
Self-contained: doesn’t require loading any additional CSS or image file. All navigation icons are CSS shapes.
Multi-language: all displayed text can be customised.
