texliveonfly – On-the-fly download of missing live packages

The pack­age pro­vides a script that per­forms ‘on the fly’ down­loads of miss­ing pack­ages, while a doc­u­ment is be­ing com­piled. (This fea­ture is al­ready avail­able in the Mik dis­tri­bu­tion for Win­dows ma­chines.)

To use the script, re­place your () com­pi­la­tion com­mand with texliveon­fly.py file.tex (de­fault op­tions are --en­gine=lu­ala­tex and --ar­gu­ments="-sync­tex=1 -in­ter­ac­tion=non­stop­mode", which may all be changed).

The script is de­signed to work on Linux dis­tri­bu­tions.
