Transform a flat markdown to a reveal.js presentation.

Project description


It's an extremly basic Markdown to reveal.js conversion tool.

Yes reveal already supports Markdown, but it needs specifically crafted Markdown with strange separators which I don't personally like. And yes you can also do this using pandoc but it mess with syntax highlighting by handling it.


mdtoreveal --output my_prez.html

It's also allowed to skip the output file, so its name is guessed, the previous command is equivalent to the following one:



Let's start with pure Markdown:

# Big titles makes reveal.js "columns"

## Sub titles make reveal.js "slides" inside columns.

print("Syntax highlighting works")

::: notes

Look, this is a personal note, it's not mandatory to use them, but you still can.
Everything betwen `::: notes` and the next slide is only visible by the presenter.

## 2nd slide

Blah blah …


It converts this into this (this one uses a .gitlab-ci.yml to publish on push).


There's not, deal with it, don't loose your time on fine-tuning, and focus on your presentation.

Still, you prefer a dark theme? It's unreadable on video projectors, keep this one, trust me.

You want bigger code blocks? You already have 12 lines and 61 columns, if you stuff more, it won't be readable anyway, stick to it.

You want a bigger font for your code blocks, so it's still readable from the end of the room? I can understand that, I used to use a bigger one too, let's talk in the issues.

You're using a Makefile?

Me too ♥ this should do:

SRCS := $(wildcard *.md)
HTML := $(

.PHONY: static
static: $(HTML)

	mdtoreveal $< -o $@
