  • pandoc

    Universal markup converter

    Pandoc is an extremely powerful tool that converts between dozens of different formats (including outputting 7 different slideshow formats). For example, you could write a document in markdown and convert it to reveal.js. Or you could write the document in LaTeX and convert to a powerpoint file. There's also a pretty flexible templating system and support for Haskell/Lua plugins, so it's pretty easy to get the output to look like you want it to.
