Stunning Presentations with Asciidoctor and RevealJS

In the previous post, we quickly saw the power of Asciidoctor, how it could enhance the documentation, writing and many other features.

One of the other great features is its ability to create stunning HTML presentations along with another utility called RevealJS

Below is the sample presentation that is an asciidoctor markup file.
