A small extension for deck.js that adds support for Markdown syntax in slides. When this extension is included in the slides HTML page, the content of every slide will be interpreted as Markdown and its HTML content will be replaced by the Markdown converter output.


This extension depends on the JavaScript [PageDown Converter] (http://code.google.com/p/pagedown) for Markdown conversion.


  1. Download deck.markdown.js
  2. Download Markdown.Converter.js
  3. Place the above files in: <deck.js slides directory>\extensions\markdown
  4. Include both files in your deck.js slides page, for example:
<script src="extensions/markdown/Markdown.Converter.js"></script>
<script src="extensions/markdown/deck.markdown.js"></script>

Note: the order of the JS imports matters! The PageDown Converter code must be included before the extension.
