Table of contents

Features

Once added in your project it will add the two following two main features:

  1. It create a real-time communication channel using WebRTC with the Progressive Web App of DeckDeckGo
  2. It add a canvas over the content which will reflect what will be drawn in the Progressive Web App

Getting Started

Start you new presentation by following the quick � Getting Started guide

Standalone

To create easily your PWA presentation and to enjoy all the options, I suggest you to use the starter kit as described in the documentation.

However, if you wish to use this Web Component as a standalone component to add a remote control to your DeckDeckGo's presentation you would have installed as standalone too, install it as the following:

Install from NPM

Install it in your project from npm using the following command:

npm install deckdeckgo-remote

Using from a CDN

It's recommended to use unpkg to use this component from a CDN. To do so, add the following include script in the main HTML file of your project:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/deckdeckgo-remote@latest/dist/deckdeckgo-remote.js"></script>

Framework integration

The Stencil documentation provide examples of framework integration for Angular, React, Vue and Ember.

Usage

This Web Component could be integrated and used like the following:

<deckgo-remote room="my_presentation" width="300" height="200" slides="5"></deckgo-remote>

For a more concrete example you could have a look to the DeckDeckGo Starter-kit

Attributes

The following options should be set using attributes:

Attribute Type Description
room string The room respectively the presentation's name which will be displayed to the user in the app when he/she will search for presentations to connect to
server string A server URI, in case you would implement your own signaling server
width number The width of the canvas
height number The height of the canvas
length number How many slides contains your deck, this is useful to inform the app about it and initialize the length of the canvas
slides string[] The ordered list of all the tag names of the slides. Useful if you would like to inform the app about which slides are used in your deck.
autoConnect boolean If you the component to not connect itself on load, set this property to false

Methods

Furthermore to attributes, this Web Component exposes methods too.

Note: For description purpose, we reference a remote object we would have been initialized like the following in Vanilla Javascript:

const remote = document.getElementsByTagName('deckgo-remote');

Connect

Connect will open a socket with the signaling server and create a room for the presentation. If an application would wait for such a room, it will also inform this application that the receiver is yet available in order to establish the WebRTC connection.

await remote.connect();

Disconnect

Disconnect will close the socket with the signaling server and remove the deck from the list of possible deck to connect to.

await remote.disconnect();

Move canvas

You might need to move the canvas, this method let's you move it.

await remote.moveDraw(leftOffset, transitionDuration);

Next slide

If you would slide in your presentation, you could call this method in order to send the information to the application, in order to reflect the slide change in the application too.

await remote.nextSlide();

Prev slide

If you would slide in your presentation, you could call this method in order to send the information to the application, in order to reflect the slide change in the application too.

await remote.prevSlide();

Go to a specific slide

This method will emit an event from the deck to slide to a specific slide.

await deck.slideTo(0); // parameters: index: number, speed?: number | undefined

Update slides

This method will emit an event from the deck to slide in order to update the list of slides.

await deck.updateSlides();

Delete slide

This method will delete the current slide in the remote app.

await deck.deleteSlide();
