The Markdown feature of reveal.js is awesome, and has an easy (and configurable) syntax to separate slides. Use three dashes surrounded by two blank lines (\n---\n). Example:

# Title
 
* Point 1
* Point 2
 
---
 
## Second slide
 
> Best quote ever.
 
Note: speaker notes FTW!
 

The separator syntax can be overriden (e.g. I like to use three blank lines).

You can use the speaker notes feature by using a line starting with Note:.

To open specific Markdown file as Reveal.js slideshow:

reveal-md slides.md

You can also provide a url that resolves to a Markdown resource (over http(s)).

reveal-md https://raw.github.com/webpro/reveal-md/master/demo/a.md

Show (recursive) directory listing of Markdown files:

reveal-md dir/

Show directory listing of Markdown files in current directory:

reveal-md

Override theme (default: black):

reveal-md slides.md --theme solarized

Override slide separator (default: \n---\n):

reveal-md slides.md --separator "^\n\n\n"

Override vertical/nested slide separator (default: \n----\n):

reveal-md slides.md --vertical "^\n\n"

Override port (default: 1948):

reveal-md slides.md --port 8888

Requires phantomjs to be installed (preferably globally)

This will try to create a pdf with the passed in file (eg slides.md) and outputted to the name passed into the --print parameter (eg slides.pdf)

reveal-md slides.md --print slides.pdf

You can define Reveal.js options in a reveal.json file that you should put in the root directory of the Markdown files. They'll be picked up automatically.

  • reveal-md always starts a local server and opens the default browser
  • From any presentation, navigate to the root (e.g. http://localhost:1948) to get directory listing of (linked) Markdown files. Root folder is resolved from Markdown file (or directory) reveal-md was started with.
