The idea behind this project was to create an “application” that would work well on everything from an iPad to a 60-inch touchscreen. After some brainstorming and thinking, the idea of a Prezi came to mind. However, the client was looking for more features and custom development then Prezi could provide.

The solution was to leverage impress.js and node to build an website (html, css and javascript) then compile into an app that could be distributed. In the end, the project went well beyond the basics of impress.js (basically Prezi, but better) and included everything from an image slider to a custom PDF viewer. I integrated Gulp and Node Web Kit builder into the framework so that with one command, the project could be packaged into a file and distributed across the clients various devices.

 

This project was done while working at Miller Designworks
