re: What's the best software for collaborating on a slide deck? VIEW POST


Maybe text-based slides generators? And then store the Markdown files in git. 🌟

There are a couple of options for Markdown-based slides generators, for example:

This is absolutely not a plug about DeckSet, but I use it and enjoy it a lot because it’s just Markdown with a bit of sugar on top for layout and theming (Marp does the same, but it’s more limited in features).

Text-based slides are obviously more limited/less flexible than your usual PowerPoint. But at the same time I’ve found that less freedom kind of forces you to focus on the content rather than spending hours tweaking the aesthetics, and allows you to use git to get async collaboration. :)

Edit: actually MDX Deck looks like a great implementation of this too. πŸ‘
