Creation of title pages is something most authors should not have to do. But reality is not perfect, so a lot of authors have to do it. In 2009 KOMA started the title page project at https://komascript.de/titlepage to collect real title pages and implement them with a well defined interface. In 2021 the project has been moved to https://github.com/komascript/uni-titlepage and renamed.

Now, changing from one title page style to another would be very simple. Nevertheless implementation of a new title page style may be still difficult. But maybe the guys of the title page project would help you. Just ask!

Unpacking and Installation for Developers and Distributors

To unpack and install all files, you can download the source from github and then run:

l3build install

Afterwards you can build the manual and the PDFs of the examples using:

l3build doc

As an alternative you can use the CTAN source distribution. This already contains the user manual and the PDFs of the example files. So you only have to run

tex uni-titlepage.dtx

to generate the package file uni-titlepage.sty, the title definition files title-*.def and the example titlepages titlepage-*.tex.

Please note, the title-*.def files are run-time files. Together with uni-titlepage.sty they have to be placed in tex/latex/uni-titlepage inside a TDS tree. All files titlepage-*.tex and titlepage-*.pdf as well as uni-titlepage.pdf are part of the documentation and should be placed in doc/latex/uni-titlepage/ of the TDS tree.

Unpacking and Installation for Users

Users can use the installation described at Unpacking and Installation for Developers and Distributors. However, if your distributor already distributes a ready for installation package, you do not need and should not create files and copy them yourself. Just use the package manager of your distribution to install the package.

How to Contribute

If you have made a title definition that is not specific for a single project but could be of interest for other users, you can either

  • make your own uni-titlepage-FOO package with its own manual and [upload it

to ctan](https://www.ctan.org/upload),

  • contribute in adding it to uni-titlepage.

The first option has the advantage, that you are free. There won't be any code reviews by the uni-titlepage developers. You don't need to use the same coding style. There is not need to accept the license of uni-titlepage etc. But in this case you have to take care to keep it compatible with future releases of uni-titlepage and it will not be presented in the uni-titlepage manual.

The second option has the advantage, that after accepting your code, the uni-titlepage developers will try to keep it working even if they change uni-titlepage. But there are several restrictions to your code, before it will be accepted. For example, you should always try to use general options, if possible. Static text (not handled by options) should be configurable via \newcaptionname, \providecaptionname and \renewcaptionname and should be available at least in English and German (but if we can, we help in translating them). The coding style and quality is also a criterion.

uni-titlepage – Universal titlepages with configuration options and predefined styles

Creation of title pages is something most authors should not have to do. But reality is not perfect, so a lot of authors have to do it.

This package not only provides several pages for the title instead of only one — at least five are typical for a thesis! —, it also provides a bunch of predefined titlepage styles with several standard elements, and optionally additional elements.
