A slide deck is a "content module": a folder with at least a
npm init, the
deck init command provisions
a folder with the files that make up a slide deck.
npm install when run without options
deck install will install dependencies for a slide deck (generally we would do this after a
deck install <slide deck name>
When a slide deck is specified,
deck will use npm to download
and install the content module. Unlike an npm install, the resulting
slide deck folder will placed in the current working directory instead
node_modules folder. Otherwise all other
npm behaviours apply (e.g. will lookup from repo as per
npm config etc.)
deck present [<slide deck path>] [!]
When run in a slide deck folder, this will build a presentation from the
deck.md file in the current folder then open
@deck/gui for viewing and presenting.
If a path to a slide deck is supplied it will likewise be presented.
A special syntax
deck present ! instructs
deck to present the
most recently installed content module.
deck edit [<slide deck path>]
Opens a slide decks
deck.md file in the default systen editor (as per the
$EDITOR environment variable). If given a path the
deck.md file at the supplied path will be opened, otherwise a
deck.md in the current folder will be opened.
deck upstream [<slide deck path>]
Creates a new branch on GitHub, pushes modified content and makes a pull request with the change.
The slide deck does not need to be a git repository for
to function - however Github keys are required (see https://github.com/nearform/deck-upstream)
If a path is not supplied, the current folder is assumed.
The deck system is built on and/or utilizes:
