Markdown is great for content, but it's not ideal for create slide decks. Markdown doesn't provide a way to wrap each slide in a parent element, making it very difficult to style your slides with CSS.
markdown2slides is a node module, intended to be used in a grunt workflow, that lets your write your slideshow content in markdown without compromising stylability.
npm install markdown2slides
Write your slideshow content in a markdown file, using horizontal rules (---) to separate each slide:
slide 1---slide 2---slide 3
Use markdown2slides to convert your markdown file into an ordered list:
var slides = 'path/to/my-preso.md'
The value of
slides is now an HTML string that looks like this:
slide 1slide 2slide 3
markdown2slides is intended to be used for static HTML site generation. It is blocky/synchronous/non-streamy. In other words, don't use it at runtime in your node apps.
