tint 0.1.0

A new release of the tint package just arrived on CRAN. Its name expands from tint is not tufte as the package offers a fresher take on the Tufte-style for html and pdf presentations.

This version adds support for the tufte-book latex style. The package now supported handouts in html or pdf format (as before) but also book-length material. I am using this myself in a current draft and this is fully working, though (as always) subject to changes.

A screenshot of a chapter opening and a following page is below:

One can deploy the template for book-style documents from either rmarkdown (easy) or bookdown (so far manual setup only). I am using the latter but the difference does not really matter for as long as you render the whole document at once; the only change from bookdown, really, is that your source directory ends up containing more files giving you more clutter and more degrees of freedom to wonder what gets set where.

The full list of changes is below.

Changes in tint version 0.1.0 (2018-04-08)

  • A new template 'tintBook' was added.

  • The pdf variants now default to 'tango' as the highlighting style.

Courtesy of CRANberries, there is a comparison to the previous release. More information is on the tint page.
