tikz_export is a tool to generate the pdf/eps/svg files from the latex tikz diagrams.

install

  1. download/clone the scripts into a folder, then run
    $ sudo pip install -e .
    

basic usage:

  1. to generate the pdf files from all the tikzpictures
    $ tikz_export basic.tex -f pdf
    
  2. to generate the eps files with -f option
    $ tikz_export basic.tex -f eps
    
  3. change the output filename with -o option
    $ tikz_export basic.tex -f eps -o myfile
    
    • then the output filenames will be myfile0.eps, myfile1.eps, etc.
  4. only process the nth image with -n option. For example, to keep the first tikzpicture only
    $ tikz_export basic.tex -f eps -n 0
    
  5. only keep the tikzpictures with specific output filenames
    1. set the output filename in latex file. To define the filename, add a line before \begin{tikzpicture}, which starts with "%%% ", e.g.,

      %%% mypicture
      \begin{tikzpicture}
      ..
      \end{tikzpicture}
      
    2. then you can choose to generate that picture only,

      $ tikz_export basic.tex -f eps --fig mypicture
      
    3. it also supports wildcard character

      $ tikz_export basic.tex -f eps --fig *my*
      
      • it will process all the pictures with my in theirs output filenames.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
