Drum Roll Please…

Without further ado let me introduce the latest GitPitch Presentation of the Day:

Directory trees are not always as pretty as this one, so GitPitch gives us a little help to render and step-over directories and files to great effect:

How Does It Work?

You can always check-out the PITCHME.md for today’s featured presentation to see how Jeff created his tree-walking effect. But here is a brief summary of the steps involved:

  1. Execute the tree command-line utility in your terminal to capture the required directory listing as plain text.
  2. Next insert the tree output into a Markdown code-block on any slide, using a text language-hint.
  3. Then add code-presenting syntax to the slide to highlight and step-through any directory or file within the directory-tree structure.

You’re almost done. The final step is to go wow your audience ;-)

Presentations for Everyone on Git.*

Ok, that’s it for today. I hope you were able to take some inspiration or helpful tips from today’s featured presentation.

GitPitch lets you effortlessly craft and share beautiful content about the things you care about. Use it to promote, pitch or present absolutely anything ;)
