MkPaper creates a figure document in 3 + n lines of code, where n is the number of figures you have!
Have you ever wished a machine would write your paper for you?
Wish no more, the future is here!* I’ve created a Python package that will compile a LaTeX or word document of figures. Basically, you feed the package a path to a figure and a caption and then it will create either:
- a PDFLaTeX document or a
- Word Document
with those figures and captions inserted! I’ve tried to make it as simple and painless to install as possible (just clone the repo’); dependencies are kept to a minimum, specifically:
- python 2.x
- pdflatex (optional)
- python-docx (optional)
Without pdflatex, the package still works (you can create the tex file and not compile). To create a Word document you need python-docx (installable with Anaconda).
To install the package:
And then, suppose you want to create a word doc, usage looks like…
