Makefiles & Latexdiff

2018-06-11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Speaker: Daniel Bankmann (TU Berlin), Benjamin Unger (TU Berlin)

Many LaTeX projects require a number of steps to produce the final pdf document (e.g. pdflatex, biblatex, 2x pdflatex). If additional TikZ pictures are included, that are generated automatically from some data sets, this list may become longer and longer. The tool that simplifies this process is called latexmk and can be efficiently used within a Makefile; and in the first part of this session, we explain its usage in detail.

In the second part of the seminar, we show how to highlight changes in your LaTeX documents (for example after a revision) via latexdiff and how this can be included in your Makefile.
