## Metropolis

IMPORTANT NOTICES FOR VERSION 1.0

• The package and theme name changed from m to metropolis!
• The title format values have been restructured. Please refer to the manual.

Metropolis is a simple, modern Beamer theme suitable for anyone to use. It tries to minimize noise and maximize space for content; the only visual flourish it offers is an (optional) progress bar added to each slide. The core design principles of the theme were described in a blog post here.

Not convinced? Have a look at the demo slides.

## Installation

Installing Metropolis from source, like any Beamer theme, involves four easy steps:

1. Download the source with a git clone of the Metropolis repository or as a zip archive of the latest development version.

2. Compile the style files by running make sty inside the downloaded directory. (Or run LaTeX directly on source/metropolistheme.ins.)

3. Move the resulting *.sty files to the folder containing your presentation. To use Metropolis with many presentations, run make install or move the *.sty files to a folder in your TeX path instead (might require sudo rights).

4. Use the theme for your presentation by declaring \usetheme{metropolis} in the preamble of your Beamer document.

## Usage

The following code shows a minimal example of a Beamer presentation using Metropolis.

\documentclass{beamer}
