What do you use to create presentations for talks?

I personally prefer to use google slides or reveal.js for creating my presentations for any type of talk.

I have seen people using a combination of vim and emacs for delivering their presentations.

Just wanted to know what is your choice for the task.

Reveal.js is cool. It supports markdown.

Why I mostly like reveal.js is because of the reason for it having a black background and white text color( Good for eyes). If I want to replace revealjs with something which can support markdown is with reveal.md

Hey, thanks! I also discovered that reveal.js supports markdown: README either inline or external. Overall I wasn't using presentation software besides Google Slides. Just about to. ☺️

Live coding and LibreOffice Impress, mostly, for my classes and videos.

I used s5 once to do a presentation with embedded live code.
