Overleaf’s Remote Hackathon

Posted on October 8, 2020 by Overleaf Feed

It’s been a year since our blog post on how we started doing remote hackathons. So many things have changed globally in the meantime, but it seems that our remote-first working practices have been our best resource during this unprecedented year. During this time, we have done other remote hackathons; the last one, which we did just a few weeks ago, was particularly interesting for the variety of projects that came out. Here we want to share a few highlights.

CTAN-Pakete per REST-API hochladen

Posted on September 27, 2020 by Uwe Ziegenhagen Feed

Vermutlich ist es nicht so bekannt, dass man LaTeX-Pakete auch per REST-API auf CTAN hochladen kann. Das ist insbesondere dann praktisch, wenn man öfter Pakete aktualisieren muss, wie ich es beispielsweise mit der DTK Bibliografie mehrmals im Jahr mache. Manfred Lotz vom CTAN-Team hat dazu ein Python-Skript geschrieben (https://gitlab.com/Lotz/pkgcheck/blob/master/ctan_upload.py), das diese API befüttert. Ich habe […]

amsreftex – a long-expected package

Posted on September 14, 2020 by Content AND Presentation Feed

I have been a long time user of the amsrefs LaTeX package. I am also an avid fan of the AUCTeX Emacs package. Unfortunately, the two don’t get along very well with each other – AUCTeX has RefTeX, which assumes that the bibliographies are done with BibTeX (and possibly also works with BibLaTeX). This makes RefTeX basically useless for me. And that was the situation until a few days ago.

Easy and quick strategies to #scicomm your DH project

Posted on September 6, 2020 by LaTeX Ninja'ing and the Digital Humanities Feed

Your digital project is great, I’m sure of that – but does it even exist if nobody knows about it? Science communication is the answer to avoid this philosophical dilemma. In this short post, I wanted to share a list of quick and easy to implement ideas to add some science communication to your projects. This is just a short post to give you some ideas, not tutorials on how to do it. However, I am open to any tutorial requests you might have on the topics involved.
