Creating OpenDocument slideshows with two simple scripts

A big issue with slideshows is that GUI presentation software, be it PowerPoint, OpenOffice Impress, KPresenter or anything else, can be quite time-consuming and distracting, no matter how you use it.

Writing bullets and sub bullets as simple text outlines is much faster, even when you're just pasting together notes you scrabbled on your PDA, email fragments, quotes from Web pages or thoughts of the moment. If you need to produce slideshows and think that the cleaner they are the better, but don't like the time it takes to put them together in a GUI, here's a solution: two scripts that take an empty OpenDocument template and insert into it the content of a plain text outline.
