Software, data and useful links (work in progress).
LaTeX makes great documents. Typographically excellent, in a non-proprietary and vectorial output format. But, OK, we must admit it can be difficult to handle sometimes. A couple of very useful tools :
- Never, ever again spend an hour to find a special character code in a list : detexify will change your life. Draw in the box, and that’s it!
- Bug hunting or weird idea, there must be someone who already asked for help (and got it) on stackexchange.
- Tons of examples, especially for TikZ graphics on texample.
- Some more examples, with an interactive online editor to modify them and see the result without even closing your browser on writelatex.
