Slidev - Presentation Slides for Developers | Product Hunt

Motivation

I always found myself spending too much time styling and layouting slides when using apps like PowerPoint / Keynote / Google Slides. Whenever I need to share code snippets, I would also need to use other tools to generate the highlighted code as images over and over again.

So as a frontend developer, why not solve it the way that fits better with what I am good at?

Prism depends on community contributions to expand and cover a wider array of use cases. If you like it, consider giving back by sending a pull request. Here are a few tips:

  • Read the documentation. Prism was designed to be extensible.
  • Do not edit prism.js, it’s just the version of Prism used by the Prism website and is built automatically. Limit your changes to the unminified files in the components/ folder. prism.js and all minified files are also generated automatically by our build system.
  • The build system uses gulp to minify the files and build prism.js. With all of Prism's dependencies installed, you just need to run the command npm run…

5. Gestalt

A set of React UI components that supports Pinterest’s design language

GitHub logo pinterest / gestalt

A set of React UI components that supports Pinterest’s design language

Gestalt

NPM Version gestalt

Gestalt is a set of React UI components that enforces Pinterest’s design language. We use it to streamline communication between designers and developers by enforcing a bunch of fundamental UI components. This common set of components helps raise the bar for UX & accessibility across Pinterest.

Visit the official Gestalt Documentation

Installation

The package can be installed via npm:

npm i gestalt --save
npm i gestalt-datepicker --save
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Or via yarn:

yarn add gestalt
yarn add gestalt-datepicker
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Usage

Gestalt exports each component as ES6 modules and a single, precompiled CSS file:

import { Text } from 'gestalt';
import 'gestalt/dist/gestalt.css';
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

That syntax is Webpack specific (and will work with Create React App), but you can use Gestalt anywhere that supports ES6 module bundling and global CSS.

Development

Gestalt is a multi-project monorepo. The docs and components are all organized as separate packages that share similar tooling.

6. KaTeX

Fast math typesetting for the web.

KaTeX

npm semantic-release CI codecov Discussions jsDelivr katex.min.js size Gitpod ready-to-code

KaTeX is a fast, easy-to-use JavaScript library for TeX math rendering on the web.

  • Fast: KaTeX renders its math synchronously and doesn't need to reflow the page. See how it compares to a competitor in this speed test.
  • Print quality: KaTeX's layout is based on Donald Knuth's TeX, the gold standard for math typesetting.
  • Self contained: KaTeX has no dependencies and can easily be bundled with your website resources.
  • Server side rendering: KaTeX produces the same output regardless of browser or environment, so you can pre-render expressions using Node.js and send them as plain HTML.

KaTeX is compatible with all major browsers, including Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, Edge, and IE 11.

KaTeX supports much (but not all) of LaTeX and many LaTeX packages. See the list of supported functions.

Try out KaTeX on the demo page!
