Quick Start

If your main file is mypaper.tex:

$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ransford/pdflatex-makefile/master/Makefile.include
$ cat > Makefile
TARGET=mypaper
FIGS=img
include Makefile.include

Features

Simple Makefile for typesetting papers using pdflatex.

Features:

  • Simple to use: just set TARGET=<yourpaper> and include Makefile.include. See the example/ directory for a usage example.
  • Supports multiple targets: set TARGETS=paper1 paper2 instead of TARGET.
  • Calculates dependencies sanely. Detects changes to included .tex and .bib files and rebuilds when appropriate.
  • Detects your revision control system (svn, git, hg) and defines a \Revision command you can use in your LaTeX markup to include a current revision identifier. Useful for circulating drafts for comment.
  • make view opens your typeset document.
  • Distills a camera-ready PDF (with fonts embedded): make distill
  • To generate a draft with the revision number in its filename (to pass around), use make snapshot.
  • Generate PDFs in the folder $(FIGS) (e.g., img/) from SVGs with Inkscape
