Subject Re: Contributing to XSLF Code

Hi Eliot,

I'm happy to see that people use my code . You are very much welcome
to contribute!

I don't think that any part of XLSF is under way. What is in SVN is
the current state.
It makes sense to check POI Bugzilla and the dev list and see if there
are related patches .

Have a look at the "pptx merger" example:


You can use it to chop a .pptx file into single-slide presentations.
Note that there are two similar methods:
XSLFSheet.appendContent and XSLFSheet.importContent.

The first one keeps existing shapes. The second method completly
replaces current content .

A reverse booster can use the same approach.

If I did it, I would make it a simplified dialect of html with title,
body tags, etc.
I don't think a generic html2pptx renderer is possible, but a
simplified generator from a number of pre-defined formats is certainly
The pre-defined html layouts will follow PowerPoint's layouts: title
only, title and body, etc.
