Converting from CommonMark Markdown
Markdown was developed in 2004, with a spec and an implementation in Perl. Over the years implementations for more and more programming languages evolved. Unfortunately the specification was ambiguous in some points, so some implementations did things differently. CommonMark was developed 10 years later, in 2014, with an unambiguous spec and tests to see if new implementations are correct according to the spec. A few big players (GitHub, GitLab, Reddit, Swift and many more) adopted this common standard. So it’s basically the standard you might know already.

Slidy is a Web-based slideshow created by the W3C, so it doesn’t get more official. The output is accessible and can be viewed with every web browser. Pretty cool, huh? It’s nothing for people that like their presentations styled though. Yes, you can add a little bit CSS. But come on, if you want a beautiful slideshow, I don’t think that’s the easiest way to go. If you want to invest literally no time, then it’s probably a good solution. You can use a Markdown file that contains your notes and generate a slideshow from it. Just put a few dashes between the sections to have multiple slides. Easy as that.The files end with
