Comprehensive TeX Archive Network

Direc­tory support/texliveonfly

This script performs "on the fly" downloads of missing packages on compilation,
a feature that many missed from MiKTeX.  To use it, replace your
lualatex/pdflatex/etc command with a call to this script, e.g.

texliveonfly.py file.tex

[Current default options are --engine=lualatex and
--arguments="-synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode"; these can be changed.]

The script was written on Ubuntu and should (hopefully) be compatible with
linux distributions.  Because it is strongly dependent on tlmgr, it can
only be used with TeX Live 2010 or later.

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.
