This post is rather meant as a memory support for me than to inform anyone else. In this post I plan to maintain a list of packages that I found interesting, useful, remarkable, funny, whatever… but actually have only seldom if ever used and hence have difficulties remembering their existence.
I wasn’t too serious when I posted “Is this going…” suggesting a package providing macros for creating galvanic and other electrochemical cells. Quite to my surprise I have gotten a lot of feedback and interest, though. This made me thinking:
My »acro« package (which I have described earlier already) has – to a certain degree – grown up and reached version 1.0. Why is that and what is new?
Sometimes things go fast. This weekend a question on TeX.sx popped about how to create Bohr models with LaTeX.
Just a quick note: Joseph Wright has written a short series about ChemFig that is worth a look! Part I: ChemFig basics Part II: Customizing appearance Part III: Exploring ChemFig further
This has been sleeping for quite a while. Some new features here, some polishing there, correcting bugs, completely forgetting about if after I didn’t need it anymore… Well, here it is: ENdiagram. The package for the creation of potential energy curves. Another chemistry niche filled with a package.
This is a non-chemistry post. It (probably) won’t happen again…
Although I know TikZ for quite a while now and believe I have a good idea of what’s possible with it, it never seizes to amaze me. One I can’t hide from you:
A few days ago the question came up how to draw Hägg diagrams with .
Are you teaching chemistry and have ever had the need to show the addition of equations and the cancelling of compounds? Well, that’s not too complicated.
