@akhmerov not missing anything... I think both things are valuable, a "notebook"-like view of the slides and also a non-notebook-like one... if we want to provide one of them I will choose the notebook-like one... but maybe we can provide both in nbconvert itself... I would be OK to have a non-notebook like option in nbconvert itself, but also I would be -1 to not have the notebook like slides... also, the notebook-like view is far from perfect and need to be formatted to be more "presentationy" but keeping the general idea of the notebook, starting with bigger fonts by defaults, less waste of horizontal space, etc...

It is, but sometimes there are errors with the server. We will let the hosts know.

@damianavila I'm quite OK with a plain reveal not being in nbconvert proper, but I've had about enough time spent on trying to find workarounds to e.g. jupyter/nbconvert#43, that I'm start believing that a plain presentation template is an effort that would pay off. I see for example that reveal.js supports github markdown. Do you know if this option is good enough for jupyter markdown?

@akhmerov github mardown is on top of marked, so... I guess it would work in general terms, although there is always the possibility of a mismatch...

Thanks. Do you also know if reveal.js allows to combine markdown with html within the same <section>?

hi, while debugging in the ipdb prompt, I am not able to go back to previous debugger commands. I tried up arrow. Could you tell me how to scroll through commands history in the ipdb prompt?

@ellisonbg I was talking about the last item in the top issue description, which I have been keeping up to date.

@gitgit137, if you're using qtconsole, there's no way to scroll through history
