TeXmate – Comprehensive chess annotation in LaTeX

TeXmate for­mats chess games from very sim­ple ascii in­put. The clean “1. e4 e5; 2. Nf3 Nc6; 3. Bb5 a6” will pro­duce the same re­sults as the slop­pier “1 e4 e5; Nf3 Nc6 3.. Bb5 a6”. The re­sult­ing for­mat is fully cus­tomiz­able.

There are 4 lev­els of com­men­tary: 1 is the main game, 2-3 are com­men­taries. Each has its fonts, punc­tu­a­tion marks, etc., and these are also cus­tomiz­able. The pack­age in­cludes a tool for the cre­ation of di­a­grams.

The pack­age works in con­junc­tion with skak to pro­duce di­a­grams of the cur­rent po­si­tion au­to­mat­i­cally. For chess fonts, the pack­age uses the chess­fss sys­tem.
