Creating sparklines with LaTeX

Posted on September 24, 2017 by Uwe Ziegenhagen Feed

Sparklines, invented by Edward Tufte (check out his awesome books!), are an interesting way of visualizing information inside the text. For more information on the theoretical background check Prof. Tufte’s page https://www.edwardtufte.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=0001OR. For LaTeX users there are a few ways of using them inside LaTeX which we will briefly introduce in this article. 1. Using […]

Case Study: An Introduction to Code Ocean—Creating and Uploading Content into Overleaf

Posted on September 21, 2017 by Overleaf Feed

Code Ocean is a cloud-based computational reproducibility platform that provides researchers and developers an easy way to share, discover and run code published in academic journals and conferences. In this Case Study article we show how files produced by algorithms and projects published on Code Ocean can be uploaded into an Overleaf LaTeX document. We also demonstrate that Code Ocean can be used as an external platform for producing a wide range of programmatically-generated content specifically for use within Overleaf LaTeX documents.

Exemples linguistiques avec LaTeX (2)

Posted on September 16, 2017 by Cipanglossia Feed

Dans un précédent billet d’introduction, nous avons vu comment présenter des exemples linguistiques numérotés et glosés avec LaTeX. Ce billet va présenter quelques solutions pour traiter les gloses de manière systématique et efficace. Intérêt de systématiser les gloses grammaticales Mon collègue Guillaume Jacques rédige actuellement une grammaire de référence du japhug avec LaTeX, et je l’ai encouragé à prendre le temps de réfléchir à une manière de systématiser le traitement de ses exemples glosés. En effet, la systématisation (semi-)automatique par la programmation constitue tout […]

Exemples linguistiques avec LaTeX

Posted on September 12, 2017 by Cipanglossia Feed

Exemples numérotés et glosés Les travaux en linguistique sont naturellement illustrés d’exemples. Pour un maximum de clarté, on fait précéder ces exemples d’un numéro permettant de s’y référer et on les présente séparés du texte principal. Il est également d’usage, notamment quand il s’agit d’une langue autre que l’anglais et que la langue dans laquelle le travail est rédigé, de donner une glose interlinéaire morphème par morphème et alignée mot-à-mot. C’est-à-dire que sous chaque mot de la ligne du texte original est alignée une […]

TeX Tables: How TeX Calculates Spanned Column Widths

Posted on September 8, 2017 by Overleaf Feed

Producing tables in TeX or LaTeX can be quite time-consuming, especially for tables that contain entries which span multiple columns—these can often produce quite unexpected results. Using an extensive collection of annotated TeX tables (in SVG format) we explain the calculations that TeX uses to define the width of columns containing spanned entries (e.g., for table headings). By exploring (and explaining) a few key concepts we hope this article helps to make typesetting TeX tables just a little less frustrating and mysterious.

De Linux Libertine à Libertinus

Posted on September 6, 2017 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Il y a un certain temps, j’avais publié un fork de la police Linux Libertine corrigeant un bug sur les chiffres elzéviriens en italique gras. Depuis la police Linux Libertine a été officiellement forkée par Khaled Hosny sous le nom de « Libertinus ». L’auteur a corrigé le bug et d’autres. Autant donc utiliser celle-ci.
