# Markdown ## to author Impress.js presentations * This presentation was written entirely in Markdown * Added by popular request * Easy way to make quick, simple yet aesthetic, presentations * Authoring without all the clutter of HTML ----- # Markdown.js * Provided by [Markdown.js](https://github.com/evilstreak/markdown-js) in [extras/](https://github.com/henrikingo/impress.js/tree/myfork/extras) * Jot down your bullet points in *Markdown* & have it automatically converted to HTML * Note: The Markdown is converted into a presentation client side, in the browser. This is unlike existing tools like [Hovercraft](https://github.com/regebro/hovercraft) and [markdown-impress](http://binbinliao.com/markdown-impress/) where you generate a new html file on the command line. * This combines the ease of typing Markdown with the full power of impress.js HTML5+CSS3+JavaScript! ----- # Styles * You can use *italics* & **bold** * ...and `code` ----- # A blockquote & image ![Mother Teresa holding a newborn baby](images/3476636111_c551295ca4_b.jpg) > Spread love everywhere you go. > Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. *-- Mother Teresa* Image credit: [Peta de Aztlan](https://www.flickr.com/photos/peta-de-aztlan/3476636111/)@Flickr. CC-BY 2.0 ----- # Code When also using [Highlight.js](https://highlightjs.org/) integration, code blocks in Markdown are converted to HTML first, then colored by Highlight.js: // `init` API function that initializes (and runs) the presentation. var init = function () { if (initialized) { return; } execPreInitPlugins(); // First we set up the viewport for mobile devices. // For some reason iPad goes nuts when it is not done properly. var meta = $("meta[name='viewport']") || document.createElement("meta"); meta.content = "width=device-width, minimum-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, user-scalable=no"; if (meta.parentNode !== document.head) { meta.name = 'viewport'; document.head.appendChild(meta); } ----- # Slide separator * 5 dashes are used to separate slides: `-----` * Attributes from `div.step` element are simply repeated. * Better use relative positioning, lest your slides will all be on top of each other. * If you need to set some attributes, just use HTML and create a div element, then write Markdown inside each div.
# Title slide ## This slide has different CSS class than the previous ones
# Simplicity of Markdown & Full power of Impress.js * This slide sets its own `rotate`, `x`, `y`, and even `z` coordinates * Note that the Mother Teresa slide earlier was pimped with some custom CSS, all the while the content was written in simple Markdown.

CSS & JavaScript magic

Just to emphasize my point, this last slide allows you to use a JavaScript powered menu to toggle the CSS style:

Black & white, Devopsy, Effects overload

Simplicity of Markdown married with full power of Impress.js!
