    Magically creates presentation slides from markdown! The best way to prepare for a talk.


    Not as many options as Powerpoint, but that's what makes it amazing! Deckset forces you to think about your message.

    I've been using Deckset since I found out about in 2015. It allows you to effortlessly create presentation slides from markdown text. My secret weapon when preparing for a talk!

    Simple, fast, to the point


    A bit of a learning curve to place images

    I'm a happy user of the paid version of Deckset. After using Keynote for more time than I can remember, I've opted for the simplicity of using markdown and having bold text rather than fine control over placement of graphical elements that Keynote will provide.

    My presentations for the last 12 months have all been done either with Deckset (for the screen) or with Google Slides (for collaboration) with super simple templates. If you look at my Slideshare you can tell that wasn't always the case ;-))

I am so excited about this one! 🎉 In 2015, at a conference in Barcelona, I watched @rachelandrew effortlessly create slides for her talk in markdown. She was able to modify her presentation on the fly, adding quotes from the speakers who were before her. I asked her what she was using: "Deckset!" she replied. Since then, Deckset has been my secret weapon in preparing every single talk I've given. Writing my talks in markdown makes it easy to create my initial outline -- Deckset takes that markdown and magically turns it into beautiful slides. Now, you can edit and create your own themes for Deckset (something I've wanted for a long time). Congrats on this launch @se!

@mijustin Thanks so much for hunting us, @mijustin, and really glad to hear how you found out about it via @rachelandrew! 🙌

@se I feel the same way as @danielbarden in this tweet: "I cannot stress how much @decksetapp helps me to create presentations quickly. I have 2 hours to come up with a presentation for a Brown Bag session about the new tools from Xcode 8 :)"

Powerpoint pixel pushers, meet your salvation. I've been waiting for V2 of Deckset for months. It's literally one of my favorite productivity Jedi tools, given that I write notes in markdown anyways. Deckset takes my Markdown and spits out beautiful, typography-rich presentations that put the focus on the content. Just as an example, two months ago, I was sitting with two people on my team, prepping for a company-wide meeting. I took notes and at the end magically transformed it into a presentation (complete with our company's theme) with the new beta theming. I blew their minds. @se congrats on shipping a hero-maker.

@eytanbuchman 🙌 So glad to hear that and thanks for sharing that story!

I'm looking forward to being able to gently customise my slide design… although I still think a lot of power came from _not_ being able to customise /screw up the design.
Sven EllingenMaker@se · A Color Bright
@ideasasylum We totally hear you on this one and it’s part of the reason it took us so long to come up with a solution that still sticks to Deckset’s original promise of not having to fiddle with design controls endlessly. I think you’ll like it!

I have been using Deckset for years and have always been super happy for using it to create slides for education and talks alike. Super stoked to see v2 launch!

@esbenhardenberg Thanks, really glad to hear that! 🙌

Hey great idea, this seems a wonderful product specially for entrepreneurs I think it would be nice if this was a web app and not a desktop software, since people can't use it on Linux/Windows/Mobile. I also think (from the presentation video and pictures on your website) that it needs more "pre-made templates" so people can save even more time.
Sven EllingenMaker@se · A Color Bright
@aviggiano Thanks for the feedback. Those are great points. We often times get the feedback that people appreciate the fact that it isn’t a web app because they’d be preparing their slides on the go, while travelling to a conference or in other circumstances where they’re not so sure how reliable their connection will be. Being entirely on the device does give peace of mind to some! :-) But I fully agree that having a web-based part would be great both for cross-platform availability and collaborative features. We’ll see what the future holds! ;-) Regarding more templates: Yes, 100%, we didn’t want to overshadow the launch of customization with a truckload of themes but we’ve still got something up our sleeves…
