Hekyll

pronunciation: "heckle"

Authored by: Brian McMurray (bmcmurray) and Steven Merrill (smerrill)

Hekyll is a presentation generator that uses Jekyll and Impress.js to create awesome presentations. You write Markdown files, which get turned into individual slides for an Impress.js presentation.

Design Goals

Hekyll should:

  • Make it easy for hackers to write graphically-impressive presentations in Markdown.
  • Allow easier collaboration on these presentations through GitHub.
  • Allow users to commit and publish their presentations through GitHub using GitHub Pages.
  • Provide a good print stylesheet so that a user can print to PDF when conferences ask for slide decks.

How to Use Hekyll

  1. Download and install Jekyll.
  2. Download or clone the Hekyll repository.
  3. Configure options in _config.yml
  4. Create a new Markdown file for each slide in _posts. Use the post_template.md as a starting point. Be sure to name each file with a date, just like Jekyll.

Requirements

  • Jekyll
