md2slidy allows one to conveniently compose a W3C Slidy presentation in plain Markdown. It's an Embedded Ruby file (.erb) which reads Markdown from the standard input and writes HTML to the standard output.
# Example: $ erb md2slidy.erb < CS100_Lecture1.md > CS100_Lecture1.html
Slides are separated in the Markdown by writing a blank line, three exclamation marks, then another blank line.
# The cover slide is taken care of automatically
## My Name
### The Date
# What to expect from this course
* Stuff * Things * FooBarBazQuux
That's all there is to it, really.
