  • markdeep-slides

  • Very nice!

    A while ago, I’ve built something similar on top of the in-browser Markdown-plus-diagrams renderer Markdeep:

  • xaringan

    Presentation Ninja 幻灯忍者 · 写轮眼

  • haskset

    Convert presentations written for Deckset to be compatible with conversion via pandoc and reveal.js to HTML

  • Awesome, one of the pain points I have with Deckset is not having an iOS version. The other one is exporting to an HTML compatible mode (to keep animated GIFs… animated). I wrote my own tool ( to leverage Pandoc and make a reveal.js export look like Deckset, but that's not ideal (basically, I don't have feature parity and any time I use a new feature I have to implement it…).

  • zim-desktop-wiki

    Main repository of the zim desktop wiki project

  • For the same thing, I use and its built in slide exporter. This allows me to keep my content in the same "notebook" for a nice all-in-one experience. It uses the "S5" system, which, I don't know how well that's been maintained, but the CSS was easy enough to modify.

  • rjsmake

    Use Markdown to generate a Reveal.js presentation in minutes.

  • This method works well. I made a template repo to standardize the process:

  • InfluxDB
