Converting from Emacs Org mode
Oh man, we really learned a lot about text formats already, but Emacs Org mode is the nerdiest thing ever. It’s like a note keeping app and a todo app, like a project management tool and a book authoring tool. But all that based on a plain-text file. That’s real digital minimalism. No cloud, no binary data, no proprietary file formats, just a simple, good old plain-text file. Add headlines, lists, paragraphs, tasks, time tracking, agendas, tables. Thank you, Carsten Dominik, for developing such a great file format. By the way, the logo is a unicorn and that’s fair, after all it’s very unique.
The files end with
.txt by default.
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
