Non-Microsoft powerpoint slides

Pilot CERN Slides' application

  • Under development - result will be demonstrated here.

Made with CodiMD

  • Open and login.
  • Click on New note.
  • Write your slides in Markdown.
  • Click on Publish
  • Unfold the Menu and select Slide mode.
  • Click F11 for slideshow mode.

Additional functionality and corporate image

You may wish to paste, at the beginning, the following metadata to enable slides' preview:

type: slide

You may also include in the metadata one of the following options for one of the CERN Themes for slides (themes cern, cern2 cern3 or cern4 offer different fonts, backgrounds, font and cover page). Example:

  theme: cern

To see the slides' Markdown source

I know of no way to see anything in codimd unless one knows the URL. If you do know the published version e.g. you can then go to the source by replacing the /p/ by /s/ and then edit (pencil) and then select the 2 windows.

To make a PDF of your slides

Made with Reveal

  • Reveal is supported by W3C and is based on html and Markdown. The content of the slides is in .md files. The wrapper is a .html file.
  • The CERN server that contains the necessary .js environment to render your slides' theme and include standard images, e.g. the CERN logo, for you to upload your slides is This web server now lives in EOS. If you login to lxplus and cd /eos/project/c/cdaweb/www/reveal/ you can deposit your 2 files (the .html and the .md). The server will render them. In case of permission problems you can contact the webmaster (see here who this is.

  • Example presentation made with reveal
  • To create your own presentation:
    • Open the .html file atlas-20171211.html in a new tab and View Source. Copy/paste that source in a local file. Change the title tag and the section where you wish to personalise the "Thank you" text.
    • See below some of the .md content of the above presentation and compare to the published version. Copy in a local file and change/expand all the content.
