AJAX-Based Presentation Platform

November 15th, 2005 by Jerome Dahdah

Robert Nyman has released AJAX-S, a presentation platform similar to Eric Meyer‘s CSS/XHTML-based S5, based on DOM Scripting (AJAX). What seperates this from Eric Meyer’s solution?

The idea came to me because I wanted a lightweight slideshow based on HTML, CSS and JavaScript, but I also wanted to separate the data of each page from the actual code that presents it. Therefore, I decided to move the data into an XML file and then use AJAX to retrieve it. The name AJAX-S is short for AJAX-Slides (or Asynchronous JavaScript and XML Slides, if you want to).

Currently it only supports IE 6 and Firefox. Opera and Safari support may follow soon.
