LaTeX source files for VividCortex's ebooks
LaTeX source files for VividCortex's ebooks.
This isn't intended to be a distribution mechanism for the ebooks—the final versions will be hosted on VividCortex's website. But it's a good place to collaborate on making them, getting external reviews, etc.
The directory organization convention is that each ebook will have a
.texfile in the top level, and a directory containing figures, reference material, etc.
You'll need the Roboto font and xelatex to build the PDFs, due to the custom fonts. You can't use the latex or pdflatex commands.
A quickstart for Mac users for installing LaTeX:
cdinto it and type
xelatex scalability.texor any other ebook name. At first you'll get an error; see below to fix.
! LaTeX Error: File 'footmisc.sty' not foundthen abort the command with
Ctrl-D, and install footmisc with Tex Live Utility.
Output written on scalability.pdfor similar.
