Making slides with reStructuredText

Feb 1, 2022 · Cambridge, United Kingdom

This will be the second meeting of 2022, for February. It's another virtual meeting, starting at 19:00 (7pm). And we're back to the first Tuesday of the month.

Tibs will talk about "Making slides with reStructuredText".

I'll discuss why we might want to make slides using a markup language (and why you might not), talk about why I prefer reStructuredText (and why you might not!), and give some examples of tools that can do this, along with their pros and cons. I'll end with my current favourite tool.


The meeting will be held on jitsi.

As normal, I shall put the meeting URL up on this page at about 18:00 (6pm) on the day, and also email it to everyone who has RSVPed "yes". I shall start paying attention at about 18:45 (6:45pm), and the meeting itself won't start until 19:00 (7pm), with the normal introductory comments.

You should find that you start with both your sound and video off. As always, feel free not to share video if you prefer not to.

There's no fixed time for stopping - we'll see how it goes.

Remember that everything we do must follow our code of conduct - see Basically, be considerate to each other.

And lastly, feel free to join our slack group ( for general discussion before and after the meeting.
