Converting from Textile

Textile is a lightweight markup language to convert text to HTML. 2002, Dean Allen developed the format to use it in his own content management system called Textpattern. It was originally written in PHP, like Textpattern was, but has been translated to Perl, Python, Ruby, JavaScript, and C#. There is no standard nor a working specification. Though, there are a handful of tools that use or used Textile. JIRA, Jekyll, Qt, Redmine, Salesforce too only name a few. Not sure why someone would want to work with it, but I bet there are reasons. Dean Allen called it “a humane web text generator”, sounds nice, doesn’t it?

The files end with .textile 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
