Markdown Presenter

This is what I use for giving simple, quick-to-produce presentations. Rather than fighting with keynote or powerpoint for hours, i can whip up a presentation in minutes using markdown.


Check out a demo here. Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to switch between slides.


You need to install this on a web server, otherwise it won't be able to open the file via AJAX. So, if you're on a mac, copy it to your ~/Sites/MyPresentation folder. Then open your web browser to http://localhost/~myusername/MyPresentation/Presenter.html.

Markdown file

The file is where you put your presentation. All you need to do to separate slides is a paragraph with an exclamation mark, eg:

This is a slide
Blah blah blah


This is another slide
Yada yada yada
