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=pdflatex and --arguments="-synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode", which may all be changed).

The script is designed to work on Linux distributions.
