   I've put together a litte online editor / service for the Slide
Show (S9) machinery that lets you convert plain text with markdown
formatting into slide shows using your template pack of choice (e.g.
S6 Blank, deck.js, etc.)

  The service runs on Heroku e.g. tryslideshow [1][2]. About the
formatting: Heading 1s get converted to "title" or "section" slides.
Heading 2s get converted to "regular" slides and use horizontal lines
(e.g. `---`)
for "hard" slide breaks. Example:

    title:     Habits
    author:    John Doe
    date:      March 22, 2016
