Upgrading From Version 3 to 4.0
We make a strong effort to avoid breaking changes but there are a couple in version 4.0. If you want to migrate an existing presentation follow these instructions.
Update Asset Locations
Our JS and CSS assets have moved. In your presentation HTML, update the following
|Old location||New location|
Remove Print CSS from
In your presentation HTML, remove the following script from the
<head>. These styles are now baked into the reveal.css file.
var link = document.createElement( 'link' );
link.rel = 'stylesheet';
link.type = 'text/css';
link.href = window.location.search.match( /print-pdf/gi ) ? 'css/print/pdf.css' : 'css/print/paper.css';
document.getElementsByTagName( 'head' ).appendChild( link );
If you keep a copy of the v3 /plugin directory there are no breaking changes. If you want to switch to the latest plugin versions, you'll need to update your
Reveal.initialize() call to use the new plugin registration syntax. Plugins are also available as ES modules.
plugins: [ RevealMarkdown, RevealHighlight ]
Removed Multiplex and Notes Server
The Multiplex and Notes Server plugins have moved out of reveal.js core to their own repositories. See their corresponding README's for usage instructions.
- We've switched build systems to gulp & rollup. Make sure to
npm installto get the latest dependencies. The server is still started with
npm start, just like before.
