Converting from LaTeX
LaTeX was developed in 1984 and no, that’s not a typo. It’s nearly 40 years old. It started as a writing tool for mathematicians and computer scientists, but has quickly been taken up by scholars who wanted to write documents with math expressions or non-Latin scripts (Arabic or Chinese for example). As with a lot of other text document formats, it’s used to structure the content, not style it. LaTeX is used directly or as an intermediate format to produce files for printing or digital distribution. It supports highlighting (such as bold or italic), citations and cross-references. Or to make it short: It’s the most powerful format to structure your texts. Convert all your files to LaTeX.
The files end with
.tex 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
