TeXPower Overview Details Examples »News »Project »Download


TeXPower is a bundle of style and class files for creating dynamic online presentations with LaTeX written by Stephan Lehmke. It's very powerful (544 kb) and as far as we know quite unique. However, there are some other options:

The TeXPower package (texpower.sty) is the main part of the bundle - enabling dynamic effects in ps and pdf documents produced from LaTeX. In addition there is a "power" seminar class (powersem.cls), a support package for the seminar class (fixseminar.sty), a package for easy dynamic lists (tplists.sty) and a package for using L. Lamports "slifonts" as text and math fonts (tpslifonts.sty). No post-processing or additional tools are needed - your standard TeX distribution will do.



The documentation for each version of the TeXPower bundle is included in the download (texpower-X.Y.Z.tar.gz). However, the newest version of the files are always available here:

In addition you might want to take a look at the lecture Stephan Lehmke gave at LUT in Finland, September 2003. The zip files contains the talk and some examples (including source code).

To improve the bundle it's important that we receive bug reports and any patches you may have written. Reporting bugs on the mailing list or in the forum is not recommended.

TeX is a computer language designed for use in typesetting; in particular, for typesetting math and other technical material. The TeX program itself is a macro compiler, and it's input consists of a stream of mixed commands and text. The most popular macro set is LaTeX.

For more information about why you should use (La)TeX read the TeX Advocacy FAQ written by Dr. Idris S Hamid from Colorado State University, and Why TeX? written by Jim Hefferon from St Michael's College.


Together with the TeXPower bundle there are several examples showing different effects and how to use TeXPower with different classes/packages.

Take a look in the doc directory or select an example from the list below. The source (tex code) for the examples are included in the TeXPower bundle.

NB! Viewing the examples inside you browser is not recommended. Save to disc and launch your pdf viewer outside the browser. The reason is that some dynamic effects are only available in full-screen mode.


Several users have contributed real-life presentations created with TeXPower. Take a look in the gallery directory.
