minimalist bundle: write you documents in a simple and clear way

The whole series have been rewritten with expl3. Please note that the documentations are not yet up-to-date. The syntax of some commands have been changed since the last version, especially the declaration of theorem-like environments by \CreateTheorem. For the moment, you can refer to the documentation of the package create-theorem.

Introduction

minimalist is a collection of styles and classes that helps you typesetting articles and books with a simple and clear design. It mainly consists of two parts.

  • Main part:
    • minimalist.sty : interface of the main style
      • minimalist-plain.sty : the plain style
        • minimalist-classical.sty : the classical style
      • minimart.cls : class for typesetting articles
      • minimbook.cls : class for typesetting books
They can be used with any major TeX engine. Currently they have native
support to English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese
(European and Brazilian) and Spanish typesetting.
  • Derivative part:
    • einfart.cls : more advanced class for typesetting articles
      • simplivre.cls : more advanced class for typesetting books
They are similar to the main classes, but have unicode support, thus can
only be used with either XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX. Currently they have native
support to Chinese (simplified and traditional), English, French, German,
Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Russian and Spanish
typesetting, and also use more beautiful fonts.
