Slidedeck: HTML5 Slideshows in markdown
This is a repackaging of the google io 2012 slidedeck, with some modifications, to be a little easier to use and more suitable for scientific presentations.
We've made a few changes:
- You edit and author your entire presentation in markdown.
- All the metadata about your project is set within the markdown file, including things like the title and author.
- It's packaged as a python project.
- You run
slidedeck createto make a new deck. This will create a new directory with your project. In particular, there will be a fine in there called
slides.mdthat contains the markdown source for your slides.
slidedeck renderwill render your deck from markdown to html5.
slidedeck watchwill watch your project and rerender the slides whenever you change the content (useful for iterative development).
- You run
- I made a few stylistic changes to the css, including changing the font size.
- The slides can contain LaTeX, which is rendered via mathjax.
- There are no google logos all over the place
slidedeck can be installed with
$ pip install slidedeck
$ slidedeck create my_slides
Look in there for the
slides.md file, and edit it to your liking. When you want to see
your work, compile the slides from markdown into HTML.
$ slidedeck render
You can also have the HTML auto-compiled from markdown, any time the files change on disk.
$ slidedeck watch
If you're curious about how any of these commands work, pass the
-h flag to the command
$ slidedeck -h $ slidedeck create -h
slidedeck watch works nicely with the tincr extension for
chrome, which will refresh your browser every time the html files its serving
are changed on disk.

For an offline version, you need a local copy of JSmol.min.js, and j2s (see the JSmol wiki).
Then add the following to the header of base.html

Below are some examples of slides using this deck.
