Software used

Here is what you need to install in order to compile the book:

Pandoc

Source: http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/

The package I am using: pandoc-1.14.0.1-osx.pkg

TeX

Installer for Mac OSX: BasicTeX

http://www.tug.org/mactex/morepackages.html

The package I am using: basictex-20150613.pkg

flushend.sty

This is a Latex extension that we use. It needs to be installed.

The method I used to install it: running this in the command line:

sudo tlmgr install sttools

titlesec.sty

Another package we need to install...

Command:
sudo tlmgr install titlesec

The titlesec package allows basic changes to the standard chapter style, including setting the font style and size or placement of the title.

tocloft.sty

We want to control the Table of Contents: \usepackage{tocloft}

Command:
sudo tlmgr install tocloft

Troubleshooting

Errors that can occur during compilation:

l.719 \tightlist```

```! Undefined control sequence.
l.4428 \afterpage```

```! LaTeX Error: \chaptermark undefined.```

This error is linked to the fancyhdr package, and is caused by using a document class without the \chapter command (article, scrartcl, ...).    
**Solution:** we need to use the "book" document class

You can’t perform that action at this time.
