Join Ray Villalobos for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing reveal.js, part of reveal.js: Online Presentations.
Reveal.js can automatically syntax, highlight or color your code so that it matches how it would appear on an editor or on a site like GitHub. That would take a lot longer to do in a program like PowerPoint or Keynote. Unlike presentation applications, any presentation you create can have regular HTML code and include things like form elements. So these right here aren't just pictures but actual HTML the user can interact with. So I can type in my name here and also check this check box and radio button and pull up this pop up list.
Reveal.js is also chock full of other features, like the ability to create a horizontal, as well as vertical slides. CSS theming, markdown support, and even built-in responsive design. That's great whether you're just giving attendees a link to your presentation or if you want to deliver you presentation with your phone or tablet. The main advantage to using Reveal.js is that everything happens and is coded for a browser. As a matter of fact, this simple presentation was created with Reveal.js. So you can take a look at the HTML code for the presentation right here.
So if you're a web designer or a developer, creating your presentations in HTML is not only more fun but also more functional.
