    The HTML Presentation Framework

    It's great to see more tools and options in this space.

    I like using reveal.js[1] for presentations, which Pandoc supports. I generally create presentations by writing markdown and then passing it to Pandoc[2] to build a reveal.js presentation for me.

    Here's a similar project that I've used in the past and liked a lot

  • haskset

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

    As a Deckset user, my only gripe (minor, and usually not a big deal) is not having an HTML version generated by it (this is why I wrote this CLI tool [1])

  • Code-Server

    VS Code in the browser

    I hadn't heard of this! Thank you! My VSCode experience is primarily "VSCode" (not Codium) w/ the MS Remote extensions and looking at code-server for its more unique capabilities. Definitely going to look into this and adopt it where I can.

    FYI, it looks like the code-server devs have some concerns about # of extensions and matching the MS market: https://github.com/cdr/code-server/issues/1473 . I'm not too worried about that for myself though.
