Dropbox Markdown

Posted on  by admin



You can search for your Paper docs, and any docs that have been shared with you, using the search bar in Dropbox Paper. Note: If you’re using the 2020 release of Dropbox Paper, you can find your docs with the search bar in Dropbox. The search bar searches the full text of Paper docs. Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily. Never email yourself a file again!

From Text

Type or paste markdown into the form above, and hit 'create deck'. Valid markdown will be parsed into a deck for you to enjoy. Deckdown currently doesn't save the markdown text that you submit to it so this is a one time, unique thing.

From A File

Tell deckdown the url of your raw .md file by passing it as the src parameter, like this:

Dropbox Paper Markdown

For example, here's a slideshow version of the deckdown readme.

  • Hosting on github

    Commit your .md file to your repo, then navigate to that file on github and click 'raw' in the upper right corner. Use the url of the raw file for deckdown.

  • Hosting on Dropbox

    Place the markdown file in your Public folder, then right/option click to get it's public link. Use this public link with deckdown. More info on public links from dropbox help.

  • Hosting elsewhere

    Deckdown can take any publicly available url as an input for generating a slide deck. Links from your local filesystem that begin with file:/// will not work. For that, just paste the contents of the file into deckdown a-la the From Text instructions above.

Why use it?

Deckdown is for breaking out of slideware jail. Traditional slideware is hard to proofread, and tweaking text size and alignment on large decks feels like a waste of time. I love reveal.js (it's used in this project), but the process of writing markup around my content in order to present it feels like a new flavor of the old slideware bloat.

Deckdown changes all that by taking the contents of a single text file and turning it into a completely acceptable and usable slide deck.

Presentations that include code examples may never be the same. I hope you enjoy using deckdown.

How it works

Deckdown breaks your markdown file into slides based on headers and horizontal rules. It does this with regex, and it splits up your file after converting it to html. This means html header tags <h1> - <h6> and <hr> become the slide delimiters.

When writing your markdown:

Markdown conversion is done with kramed, and uses GFM by default.

Known issues

Deckdown is still in an early experimental state. Feel free to use it for your presentations if you wish, just know that sailing is not yet a smooth as it could be. Here are some of the bigger issues keeping deckdown from taking the world by storm:

  • Images

    Currently, images are included at their natural size, which can look like an error - especially for .svg or hi-res images.

  • Overflowing Content

    Right now, it’s up to the markdown author to anticipate overflowing content, and to chunk accordingly.
