Git Presentation

This is a presentation about Git.


If you just want to download a copy of the presentation, you can do so here.


To build it, you will need make, pdflatex and ansi-to-svg and inkscape.

To build the main pdf, run:

make main.pdf

To build with speaker notes:

make with-notes.pdf

To only build the speaker notes:

make only-notes.pdf

Auto Images

The build system will generate certain types of graphics for the presentation as part of the build system. The resultant files will always go in the auto-images folder. As a result, this folder is not under version control.

In latex, all you need to do is


The types are documented below:


What is a presentation without an xkcd comic?


If the above is included in the latex document, the XKCD comic with the specified ID will be downloaded and embedded in the pdf.

Shell Output

I am still not aware of aware of a reliable way to include ansi coloured shell output into a latex document. I also don't want to include loads of high-res screenshots in my Git repo.

The work around I have come up with is to save the raw ansi output to a wile in shell-output. This normally involves forcing an application to output in colour:

git -c color.status=always status > shell-output/git-status.out

The build system will convert the ansi output into an embeddable PDF that LaTeX will embed.

Online images

In order to download an image from the internet and embed it in the presentation, you need do provide the extension and the base64 encoded URL.
