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:
For a list of different Ximera commands, see:
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.
To install, checkout:
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.
