LaTeX Handouts Builder (Python version)

This tool can be used to build “course handout books” using multiple LaTeX beamer slides sets.

I have been using a Bash script with almost the same functionality for a long time. Some background information on this old script can be found in this blog post.

Book structure:

  • Title page, introduction, table of contents
  • One chapter per slide set (three printer-friendly versions: no slides transitions &  less colors)

Example .zip output

How it works:

  • Just run one program: “python build.py”
  • The program starts building all the LaTeX beamer slides.
  • The output is converted to the printer-friendly formats.
  • All documents are merged in the master handouts book.
  • Create a ZIP archive with all the documents

Code and examples available at GitHub.

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging
    on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always
    be useful to read through content from other authors and use something from their web sites.
