Trigon theme

Pipeline status

A modern, elegant and versatile theme for Beamer.

![Demo]demo-shield ![Documentation]docs-shield

Trigon found its origin and inspiration in the graphical guidelines resulting from the visual identity overhaul of the University of Liège. Although directly inspired from these guidelines, the theme was stripped out of any mention or specificities related the University and its faculties. This makes the Trigon theme perfectly suitable for many different contexts.

The final product provides a modern, elegant and versatile theme with a high degree of customization. The main design focuses on triangular shapes for major layout elements and noise minimization for the main body of the work.

The theme is now available on CTAN and a template is publicly available on the Overleaf Gallery.

Feature requests, issues and pull requests are welcome.

Features

  • Multiple style variations for title, section and regular slides
  • Dark theme
  • Many convenient options (numbering style, toggle section slides, title font changes,...)
  • Looks better on 16:9 format, but supports 4:3 as well
  • Lightweight (does not require lots of additional packages)
  • Similar options than with Metropolis theme

Note

  • This theme works best using the sourcesanspro font package, which is loaded by default. As some users may not want to load additional packages or want to use other fonts, the package can be disabled using the option usesourcefonts=false.

Installation

To install a stable version of this theme, please refer to update instructions of your distribution. Trigon has been on CTAN since March 2021. For users of typical distributions (TexLive, Mac, Mik), simply updating your package list should install Trigon on your system.

If you want to use the cutting-edge development version of Trigon, you can install it manually by following these steps:

  1. Download the source using a git clone of the Trigon repository or as a zip archive
  2. Compile the style files by running make sty inside the downloaded directory. (Or run directly on source/trigontheme.ins.)
  3. Move the resulting *.sty files to the folder containing your presentation. To use Trigon with many presentations, run make install or move the *.sty files to a folder in your path instead.
  4. Use the theme by declaring \usetheme{trigon} in the preamble of your document.

Overleaf

Since October 2021, TexLive 2021 is available on Overleaf. Trigon is therefore automatically supported for new documents. If you want to switch older documents to use the Trigon theme, you need to select TexLive 2021 or higher as your Live version (this may cause issues with other packages used in your presentation).

In addition to that, a template project was created and is publicly available in the Overleaf Gallery to bootstrap your presentation.

Usage

See the package documentation for a detailed view of the package options.
