April 8, 2021 Launch Figma plugin πŸš€

I am thrilled to release today a new free and open source plugin to export Figma frames to DeckDeckGo slides πŸŽ‰.

I am really excited about this new feature and all its possibilities. It also makes me happy to finally be able to resolve a community's request which was suggested back in August 2019, when were still in Beta πŸ˜….

The plugin probably needs some more improvements, that's why I count on you to help us shape it. Ping me with your issues and best ideas in its GitHub repo.

To infinity and beyond!

P.S.: The plugin is also on Product Hunt today.

February 18, 2021 Custom templates - Code meets No-code 🀯

I am thrilled to unveil the new community and user feature of DeckDeckGo which introduces quite a cool new feature:

πŸ’» develop your own custom templates
✏️ use these with our web editor

In need for slides that matches brand identity or looking to use your favorite web technologies while still being able to edit the slides' content with a WYSIWG editor, that's new possible! It's like Code meets No-Code πŸ˜‰.

This new version introduces also many other improvements:

πŸ€™ new community template "countdown"
β†˜οΈ new default template "content aligned bottom"
✍️ edit styles with CSS
πŸͺ„ format painter
πŸ’… width, rotate and padding styles editable
πŸšͺ keep track of panels state (open / close)
🎨 new design of the editor's tools
βš™οΈ massive bump and clean up of the infrastructure

Enjoy πŸ₯³

πŸ‘‰ Demo on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxtspP4ciXA

January 16, 2021 A home for our Community

Our community now has a home on GitHub!

We are going to support soon custom users' and community's templates in our web editor, therefore it felt natural and useful to create an org for the templates and tools driven by the developers and maintainers πŸš€.

It contains currently three templates and one experiment and, we hope that in the future, through our upcoming new feature, more great projects will be shared 🀞.

December 23, 2020 Major release, again πŸ˜…

Two months ago we released a major breaking change and today we double down just before Xmas πŸŽ„.

This release aims to split the static content of our editor. That way, the landing page, rebuild from the ground up is not part of the application itself anymore. In addition, it adds the foundation to translate our platform in the future.

Introducing:

🀢 a brand new website
πŸŽ… i18n ready
πŸ§‘β€πŸŽ„ an editor for slides which does just that

Merry Christmas and all the best for 2021.

Take care and stay safe.

David

P.S.: I tweeted about it, spread the word πŸ™.

December 3, 2020 Hit 1k ⭐️ on GitHub

We hit 1k stars ⭐️ on GitHub today.

Not a goal per se but that's really cool. Even a bit unreal to me, as I never had a project which reached that milestone before, even though almost my all work is open sourced.

Thank you all and kudos ❀️.

November 25, 2020 Available in the Microsoft Store 🏬

Our editor for slides is now available in the Microsoft Store too πŸ₯³.

We develop our apps with the web but it is kind of cool to be able to publish our PWA in both the Microsoft Store and Google Play anyway and with the exact same code base.

In addition, it doesn't need much effort because the PWA Builder really ease the all process and for free, so kudos to them πŸ‘.

If you've got any questions, let me know, happy to share my experience if it can help.

October 29, 2020 v3.0.0 πŸ₯

πŸ“ full-screen editor improved

Give it a try πŸ”₯

October 9, 2020 10k people have used or tried our editor 🀩

I read the accumulated number of anonymous and registered users twice but indeed, as of this week, there are now more than 10k people who have used or tried out DeckDeckGo, the open source editor for slides πŸ₯³

Moreover, we reached this milestone without a single penny invested in ads πŸ’ͺ.

Even though numbers are not what's drive me, as I am more attached to being close to our small community and developing unique features, it definitely makes me happy to notice our small growth path.

Thanks everybody πŸ™.

P.S.: We don't have analytics, but I find these numbers in the Firebase Auth console, corresponding to the sum of anonymous and registered users.
