Version Control with Git

A practical introduction to Git. This presentation is built on reveal.js.

To check out the source for the slides themselves, see the index.html file.

The following sections have been lifted directly from the reveal.js README because they apply with little modification to this presentaiton if you plan to hack on it.


If you'd like to improve the material in the slides, you can contribute in two ways:

  1. Open a new issue.
  2. If you can work directly with the source, you can open a pull request.


The basic setup is for authoring presentations only. The full setup gives you access to all reveal.js features and plugins such as speaker notes as well as the development tasks needed to make changes to the source.

Basic setup

The core of reveal.js is very easy to install. You'll simply need to download a copy of this repository and open the index.html file directly in your browser.

  1. Download the latest version of reveal.js from

  2. Unzip and replace the example contents in index.html with your own

  3. Open index.html in a browser to view it

Full setup

Some reveal.js features, like external markdown, require that presentations run from a local web server. The following instructions will set up such a server as well as all of the development tasks needed to make edits to the reveal.js source code.

  1. Install Node.js

  2. Install Grunt

  3. Clone the reveal.js repository

$ git clone
  1. Navigate to the reveal.js folder
$ cd reveal.js
  1. Install dependencies
$ npm install
  1. Serve the presentation and monitor source files for changes
$ grunt serve
  1. Open http://localhost:8000 to view your presentation
