Auto generate a PDF notebook from your source codes (useful for your ACM-ICPC cheatsheet)
This generator works in both Linux and Windows, so check how to install TeX Live in your OS.
TeX Live for linux:
sudo aptitude install texlive
TeX Live for Windows:
download installer (install-tl-windows.exe) from https://www.tug.org/texlive/acquire-netinstall.html
Also install Node.js and NPM on your machine (you can download them from https://nodejs.org/en/download/).
After installing Node.js on Linux, add this command to your ~/.bashrc:
sudo npm install -g codes2pdf
sudo npm update -g codes2pdf
Usage: codes2pdf <source_dir> [options] Auto generate a PDF notebook from your source codes Options: -V, --version output the version number -a --author [name] author's name to be added in the notebook -i --initials [initials] initials of the author to be placed in the upper-right corner of all pages -o --output [filename] output file for the notebook. Default to `./notebook.pdf` -h, --help output usage information
codes2pdf ./ /tmp/team_reference.pdf codes2pdf ./ --author "Shahid Beheshti University" --initials SBU
The second one will create a 'notebook.pdf' file in the current directory, from the source code files which are located in the current directory and its subdirectories.
The notebook generator will add your source code with syntax highlighting, additionally you can add .tex files which will be rendered as Latex code.
Here you can find a sample: https://github.com/Erfaniaa/codes2pdf/blob/master/sample_notebook.pdf
(In the forked version, the generated notebook file will have three columns in each page; so you can put more source codes in a few number of pages.)
- Try to use up to 3 "levels" in your source code.
- Use spaces insead of underscore (in the filenames) to print a prettier TOC.
- In the forked version of the repository, the generated notebook will have three columns in each page.
