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

New documentations are still being written. For now, only the core code is included in Live 2024 and MiK (old documentations have been removed from the distribution).

Introduction

minimalist is a collection of styles and classes that helps you to typeset articles and books with a simple and clear design.

an.org/pkg/geometry), graphicx, hyperref, imakeidx, lineno, lua-widow-control, indentfirst, mathpazo, mathtools, newpx, nowidow, parskip, pgf, projlib, regexpatch, relsize, silence, tcolorbox, tikzpagenodes, titlesec, titletoc, wrapfig2, ulem.

It mainly consists of two parts.

  • Main part:
    • minimalist.sty : interface of the main style
      • minimalist-plain.sty : the style "plain"
        • The best choice for formal usage.
          • minimalist-default.sty : the default style
            • Slightly fancier than the plain style.
          • minimalist-flow.sty : the style "flow"
            • Suitable for writing course notes: sections and theorems are numbered together to create a storytelling atmosphere; proofs are colored by default.
          • minimalist-stream.sty : the style "stream"
            • Numbers are placed in the left margin; sections and theorems are numbered together to gain a streamlined feeling.
          • minimalist-classical.sty : the style "classical"
            • Originated in the typewriter style, now modernized.
          • minimalist-classicthesis.sty
            • Use your favorite design of ClassicThesis (and its carefully designed styles such as ArsClassica), while still have access to the features provided here, such as preconfigured theorem environments, multilingual support, enhanced author info block, etc.
          • ... and more styles to come (currently on schedule: "elegant", "french", "modern", "typewriter")
      • 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.
