## 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

To install a stable version of this theme, please refer to update instructions of your TeX distribution. Metropolis is on CTAN since December 2014 thus it is part of MikTeX and will be part of TeX Live 2016.

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

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
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
sudo
rights).
4. Use the theme for your presentation by declaring
\usetheme{metropolis}
in the preamble of your Beamer document.
5. For best results install Mozilla's Fira Sans.
