Simple Makefile for pdflatex-produced documents

branch: master
README.md

Quick Start

If your main file is mypaper.tex:

$ curl -O https://raw.github.com/ransford/pdflatex-makefile/master/Makefile.include
$ cat > Makefile
TARGET=mypaper
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.
  • 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.
  • To generate a draft with the revision number in its filename (to pass around), use make snapshot.
