MarkdownPresenter usage

MarkdownPresenter uses regular markdown, with one exception:

  • ---, ***, or ___ indicates the end of a slides/start of the next slide, instead of introducing a horizontal line.

Therefore, to make slides, you will use

  • #, ##, etc. to create headlines
  • *, 1., to create bullet points and enumerations` to create links
  • ![]() to include figures

Even tables work as expected:

# Tables
|A|B|C|
|---:|:---|---|
|test|Test|ab|
|1|2|3|

Below is the source for a small MarkdownPresenter demo presentation with the corresponding pdf being available here (a bigger example is available at https://jsakamoto.github.io/MarkdownPresenter/Presenter.html#1):
