Did you always want to learn ConTeXt, but did not know where to start? I have written a git-based tutorial that should help you get started.
The idea of the tutorial is to start with an empty document, and add features one-by-one. Each git commit corresponds to one small change in the document, and includes pointers to the documentation corresponding to that change. Read Use this tutorial as follows:
- Clone the git repository:
git clone git://github.com/adityam/context-slides-example.git cd context-slides-example
- Get git-walk (requires ruby)
wget https://raw.github.com/augustl/binbin/master/git-walk chmod +x git-walk
- Checkout the first commit
git checkout init
- Open the two files,
example.texin the editor.
- Read the log message, compile
example.texand view the result.
git log -n 1 context example.tex evince example.pdf &
- Go to next commit and repeat step 5.
git walk next
(Alternatively, instead of using
git-walk, you can use a GUI tool to incrementally checkout the commits one by one, compile
example.tex at each step, and view the result).
