I’ve been giving the occasional presentation at work and just wanted a way of making quick and simple presentations in markdown, as opposed to mucking around in powerpoint for hours. So came about this project of mine: Markdown Presenter.

To make a presentation, you format your markdown file as normal, with slides separated by an ‘!’ paragraph, as below:

My story
* Wasted +1yr on first app
* ...


* Money's kinda useful
* ...


* Obj-C is nice
* ...

To see an example presentation, see here.

Note that you’ll have to host the files on a web server, because of the way it loads the presentation via ajax. All this is explained on the github page. Hopefully for someone it’ll save some time next time they want to whip up a presentation!

Thanks for reading! And if you want to get in touch, I'd love to hear from you: chris.hulbert at gmail.
