mdpress – Present your markdown file in slideshow

I have been using reveal.js to create slideshow from markdown. It’s very nice and powerful. But the setup is a bit complicated. Sometimes i want to have a more simple solution.

Other than reveal.js, impress.js is a similar tool which allows you to present your ideas in a even more fancy way. I am not going to go into details of impress.js. Instead, i would introduce a tool called Mdpress which generate the .html presentation from markdown.

1. Install the Mdpress.

gem install mdpress

 

2. Create the slides.md.

# This is h1

---

## This is h2

---

## Unorder list

* item 1
* item 2
* item 3
* item 4

 

3. Generate the html, css and js files.

mdpress slides.md

 

4. After that, you will find a new folder which has the same name as your markdown file.
mdpress-1
 

5. Open the index.html to view your slideshow.
mdpress-2
 

6. You can keep Mdpress running such that you can just save the markdown file and refresh the browser to see you latest changes.

mdpress -a slides.md

 

For more usage of Mdpress, please refer to the reference links below.

Done =)
