README.md

Greetings!

In this repository, we hope to supply potential authors of Ximera activities with the LaTeX document classes they need to write Ximera documents.

For directions on using Ximera, see:

Introduction to Ximera

For a list of different Ximera commands, see:

Examples of Ximera Envrionments

Since Ximera is built on LaTeX source, we want to use LaTeX as a method of validating the code authors write. Hence, if you want to write a Ximera online activity, the first step is constructing LaTeX documents.

Once you have the LaTeX documents, and you have checked them for typos, accuracy, etc, the fact that they compile should be reasonable evidence that they will display correctly in Ximera.

Contents of the repository

  • This README.md file.

  • The GNU license.

  • The Ximera document class, ximera.cls

  • The Xourse document class, xourse.cls

  • Documentation for the document classes above, ximeraLaTeX.pdf

  • The Ximera documented LaTeX file type, ximera.dtx. This file generates ximera.cls, xourse.cls, and ximeraLaTeX.pdf, as well as a few other files.

Installing

To install, checkout:

Staying up-to-date

While we hope to solidify the ximera.cls file, at this point we are still in development stages.

To keep your file up-to-date, you may need to periodically sync or pull the the ximera.cls within the ximeraLatex directory.

ximeraLatex$ git fetch --all

ximeraLatex$ git reset --hard origin/master

will reset your ximeraLatex directory. Note it will also overwrite any modifications you have made in this directory. You should not be building your activities in this directory.
