I’ve completed the slides for my first tech talk today.

I wanted a simple, developer-friendly tool, which I can use with Markdown.

Enter backslide, a command-line tool that creates HTML presentation slides from Markdown files.

You can style templates with SASS, so your slides will look nice, too.

Installation & Usage

You’ll need Node.js:

npm install -g backslide
## or
yarn add backslide

That’ll give you a command called bs. You can create a new project with bs init, serve files locally with bs serve and export your Markdown document to HTML with bs export.
