digitalmars.D - [Semi-OT] Remark - Generate Markdown into slides

It's a bit unfortunate that I found this after DConf. For those that 
have a need to create slides/presentation and are tried of PowerPoint or 
Keynote. This is the great tool.

Remark [1] is a tool that generates/converts Markdown into slides and 
let you view them in the browser. It's really simple to use:

1. Create an HTML document with the boilerplate provided here [2]

2. Place your Markdown content in the textarea tag in the HTML document, 
slides are separated using three dashes, ---.

3. View the HTML document in a browser (JavaScript is required), use the 
arrow keys on the keyboard to navigate. Press ? on the keyboard to get 
help about the keyboard shortcuts

It even allows you to clone the browser window and supports presentation 
mode.

Now, for that part that makes this post semi off-topic and not only 
off-topic. I've created a tool, Remarkify [3][4], that allow you to 
place the Markdown content in Markdown files. It will concatenate all 
the specified Markdown files, separated with ---, run the content 
through an HTML template file and output the content into a regular HTML 
template file. For more information see [5].
