How to Use

  • Write your slides in src/slides folder in separated files using the pug syntax and add them on templates/index.pug.

  • If you want to add another scripts and css use the templates/inc/ folder and call them in the templates/index.pug.

  • Look for different themes on src/styl/reveal-themes and call them on src/styl/theme.styl.

  • For highlight themes you can see on src/styl/highlight-themes.

How to use Speaker Notes

Speaker Notes

Just add data-notes to the section of the slide, like the code bellow:

- var notes = 'You can enter anything you want here. Just add data-notes to the section.'

  img(src="img/qualy-presenter.png", alt="")
    a(href="https://github.com/Qualy-org/qualy-presenter") Look the code on Github <3

How to use with git and deploy to Github Pages

When you clone this repo, every git information will be downloaded to. So, you have to remove all my git stuff to create yours.

# Inside of your project runs to remove git folder.
rm -Rf .git

Next, initialize your git repository:

# init the repo
git init

Commit all files:

# add all files to commit
git add .
# create a commit
git commit -m "Initial commit"

The first deploy needs to be manual:

# creates a gh-pages branch
git checkout -b gh-pages

# push and track the gh-pages branch
git push --set-upstream origin gh-pages

To do next deploys, you just have to run with gulp:

# will create a .publish folder with build content
# and push to gh-pages branch.
npm run deploy


  • gulp: Initialize watch for changes and a server(localhost:3000)
  • gulp js: execute js files
  • gulp notes: copy speaker notes
  • gulp stylus: compile stylus files
  • gulp imagemin:compress image files
  • gulp watch: call for watch files
  • gulp pug: compile pug files
  • gulp deploy-pages: deploy compiled files at build to github on branch gh-pages.
