Automatic creating of PowerPoints using Julia

I have data updated every month. at the end of the month, I use specific parts of that data to create tables, which I insert into a standard PowerPoint slide deck.

Can I use Julia to automate such a process? If so, how?

I dont think there is a PowerPoint tool in Julia yet. I have considered using GitHub - scanny/python-pptx: Create Open XML PowerPoint documents in Python through pycall, but I eventually settled for Pluto notebooks exported to html.

AFAIK Pandoc can make Powerpoint from Markdown, which should be easy to generate. Never used it myself though.

That said, I would avoid Powerpoint at all cost. If PDF is an option, there are a lot of tools that can compile Markdown to nice slides.
