Why 18F/slides

You should use 18F/slides if you:

  1. Can do Markdown,
  2. Want a stupidly simple way to hack up a presentation,
  3. Want a URL for your slide deck, and
  4. Want git.

How to Use 18F/slides

To use 18F/slides:

  1. Create a new .html file in the _slides directory.

  2. Add yaml frontmatter to the file with the following:

    ---
    layout: default
    path: path-to-url
    title: Title for 18F/slides
    ---
    
  3. Create slides, using markdown syntax (technically, it's redcarpet, go nuts).

  4. Separate slides using --- for horizontal pagination between slides and -- for vertical pagination.

  5. Commit the file to the 18f-pages branch of the 18F/slides repo.

  6. Profit. See the sample slides to get a feel for how the navigation works.

How does it work?

18F/slides leverages the amazing open-source reveal.js library and jekyll and is hosted on Federalist.

How can I use this for my own slides?

If you'd like to use Slides for your own organization, here are some tips on how to fork it and get your own version:

  1. Fork! (of course)
  2. Edit _config.yml. Modify title/email and - critically - the "url" field to reflect your GitHub repository, e.g. https://github.com/18F/slides/ becomes https://slides.18f.gov. Make sure you commit to the 18f-pages branch so 18F Pages picks it up.
  3. Wait for a little while - Federalist is working behind the scenes for your initial setup, and if you try to actually view your slides right away, you'll probably get a 404. It sometimes takes 5-10 minutes; once it's set up initially, changes take effect pretty quickly.
  4. You'll presumably want to define your own theme, or pick one of the existing ones (take a look in ../assets/css/theme), and edit _layouts/default.html to reflect it. Look for the link with id="theme" in it.
  5. That's it! Enjoy your slides.
