Convert Markdown (Original)
to Slidy

Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your original unextended Markdown files and convert them to Slidy HTML and JavaScript slide show files. Yes, it’s that easy.

Converting from original unextended Markdown

The original unextended Markdown is based on the syntax outlined in John Gruber’s original design document. It already has many elements, but missed features like tables, code blocks, syntax highlighting, URL auto-linking and footnotes. Things that most of us take for granted today. I don’t know why anyone would stick with the original Markdown format, but I guess it’s something for purists. Or maybe you have a legacy system that only supports the original Markdown format. Anyway, have fun and convert to or from the strict version, the original Markdown format. We are happy to support the free conversion from and to it.

The files end with .md by default.

Converting to Slidy HTML and JavaScript slide show

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 .html by default. More about Slidy HTML and JavaScript slide show files
