Introduction

dizzy.js is a Javascript library that enables you to create nonlinear presentations similiar to Prezi without using Flash.
The presentation data is stored in the SVG-format, the navigation and animation is done via Javascript.

The editor for building these SVG-files is currently in beta stage, please report any error you find.

Code

You can pull the current sourcecode at Github.
The sourcecode and all examples are licensed under the MIT license, so feel free to do whatever you like with it.

Documentation

Will come, but probably not too soon (I know I'm too lazy). :P

FAQ

  • Why not use Prezi?
  • Prezi ist a very nice software, no doubt. The only thing bothering me was that it uses Flash and is not open source.
    I was never a fan of Flash and we have most of the functionality already in the browsers today, with all the cool stuff coming from HTML5, SVG, Javascript, etc.. and since Prezi seems to have no interest in using these, I will. (:

  • Is my browser supported?
  • dizzy.js does not use anything that is not at least a working draft by an open standards organisation (e.g. W3C), so all browsers will support dizzy.js ..someday.

    I'm testing features against three browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera.
    Internet Explorer is not supported because in the current stable release the SVG-Support is non-existent (as far as I know) or at least very bad. I just included that in the table because it looks funny. (o:
    Update: with the release of IE9, there is support for SVG, yay. I'm working on Linux, so I could not test all the feature in IE, but certainly will do that soon.

    Here ist the current status (supported, partial supported and not supported) and the version they got that status in:
