This blog is dedicated to my LaTeX adventures. I share LaTeX code (packages, classes, templates, snippets) I write and how I write it. The verb “to ninja” means “to act or move like a ninja, particularly with regard to a combination of speed, power, and stealth.” ( https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ninja#Verb )

To honour the whole spectrum of meaning of “ninja”, I try to demystify the Digital Humanities and digital tools for Humanists, one tutorial at a time, in addition to talking LaTeX. LATEX-NINJA aims at providing easy to follow tutorials on relevant subjects you can use immediately in your Humanists’ day-to-day life.

I chose to write in English, so as many people as possible can profit from this blog. But feel free to contact me in other languages if you have any questions, particularly German and French.

Some thoughts on what I mean by “Advanced LaTeX”, what a “LaTeX Ninja” is and how I got started can be read up on here: Learning “Advanced LaTeX” – The LaTeX Ninja Project.
