What is this?

A latex template for students like me who

  • Need to write papers / thesises
  • Dislike WYSIWYG and like the charm of the Latex system
  • But are too lazy to remember the clumsy syntax, commands etc.
  • Like markdown for it's simplicity

This little project aims to enable a simple workflow to just start

  1. Install (see requirements)
  2. Fork & clone or download
  3. Set document information in Head.tex
  4. Write your paper in Inhalt.md.txt using your favorite editor
  5. Write / compile your bibliography to Literatur.bib
  6. Run script/generate (in the project directory)
  7. Et voila, your paper is there (Arbeit.pdf)

This is just how it works for me, not more.

Based on a template used at my university (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany) http://www.wi.uni-muenster.de/qm/studieren/LaTeXVorlage.html

Why markdown

I'm too lazy to remember LaTex commands, they're a pita to type and the extended markdown pandoc offers suits for me.

Requirements

  1. A Unix environment (Tested under Ubuntu 10.04)
  2. A Tex distribution (e.g. TeXLive) sudo apt-get install
  3. pandoc
  4. ruby

On Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install pandoc texlive texlive-doc-de texlive-latex-extra texlive-lang-german
