@codesections I make slides for all my classes (and most conference talks) using reveal.js, hosted from gitlab pages. It's easy to set-up, and everything is done in markdown. Any changes are just a git commit away, and slides are easy to "reuse" between talks. Here is an example:
Just my 0.02€. =-)
@codesections i seem to reinvent this wheel a little bit every time i give a presentation, but last time i think it was pandoc with slidy, which was... pretty ok i guess, output wise, and easy to author:
> I always just end up writing a bunch of HTML files and loading them into fullscreen firefox tabs; my "next-slide" key is ctrl-pagedown. very shotgun-in-the-adidas-bag but it always seems like less headache than the alternatives.
Is … is "shotgun-in-the-adidas-bag" a reference to something, or just the kind of guy you are? :D
it's one of my favorite William Gibson quotes, from Johnny Mnemonic:
"I put the shotgun in an Adidas bag and padded it out with four pairs of tennis socks, not my style at all, but that was what I was aiming for: If they think you're crude, go technical; if they think you're technical, go crude. I'm a very technical boy. So I decided to get as crude as possible. These days, though, you have to be pretty technical before you can even aspire to crudeness. I'd had to turn both those twelve-gauge shells from brass stock, on the lathe, and then load then myself; I'd had to dig up an old microfiche with instructions for hand- loading cartridges; I'd had to build a lever-action press to seat the primers -all very tricky. But I knew they'd work."
@codesections I wrote a custom html file that loads layers from an inkscape svg file as slides. It plays in any browser and has a bonus trick that if you host it somewhere, you can advance slides for your viewers in their own browser.
