Patat is a relatively full-featured presentation tool that runs in the terminal. It uses pandoc which means it supports a variety of input formats, such as Markdown, Literate Haskell, and Org Mode.
In this lightning meta-presentation Jasper will present both the tool, why it is useful to have terminal-based presentation tool, and some of its implementation details. In particular, he will talk about how you don't need much more than simple Haskell '98 to create robust and flexible software.
