In this post I’ll describe a simple (read: limited) Markdown to LaTeX converter. This will cover up to three levels of headings, ordered, and unordered lists.
In this post I’ll discuss how to make simple flowcharts in LaTeX using TikZ. Probably the best collection of TikZ examples can be found at TeXample.net, but there are other helpful examples like these two PDFs, here and here. In case you’re wondering, TikZ is a recursive acronym “TikZ ist kein Zeichenprogramm,” a reminder (in German) that it is not an interactive drawing program.
In this post I’ll describe how to get LaTeX up and running on a Mac. First of all, it’s not as easy as just going,
brew install latex, and then saying,
pdflatex kapow.tex, but it’s not as hard as doing literally anything on Windows either.
