  • I’ve been using Sphinx to auto-document some python code, but noticed that there isn’t a Textmate bundle solely for Sphinx. Not to worry though: there is a reStructuredText bundle which will give you some nice commands, and here is a ridiculously simple command to run ‘make html’ for some sphinx […]

While it’s tailored to Oxford, with a few modifications I’m sure it could be used for any thesis. To get it working, you’ll  have to copy […]

  • In my honours at UWA (2008), I was the lone cowboy who decided to LyX instead of LaTeX. It saved me a shitload of time and LaTeX related anguish. As such, I thought I’d offer a UWA Thesis Template up to give a helping hand to anyone else who wants […]
