    LaTeX Project Report Template Updated

    This will be quite short.

    Many have told me they found the LaTeX Project Report Template that I published about two years back pretty useful. Today, I am releasing an update for the same. This includes a fix for a nasty bug in the original template apart from some layout changes.

    Fork it from Github at https://github.com/k4rtik/latex-project-report-template to start creating your project reports. Visit http://k4rtik.github.io/latex-project-report-template/ to get started. (I just discovered how cool Github pages are!)

    Change Summary

    1. Changed base template to a technical project report.
    2. Added example for inserting an image.
    3. Fixed numbering bug with references and acknowledgement pages.

    Please shout out in the comments section if you found this useful. :-)

    LaTeX Project Report Template 

    UPDATE RELEASEDhttp://k4rtik.wordpress.com/2013/02/15/latex-project-report-template-updated/ Please use the latest version for all the LaTeX goodness.

    Last week, starting from Sunday was spent in preparing my first project report in college and first using LaTeX. It took me over four days to finish the work. The end result was quite good and impressive. (See the attached report.pdf if you want to take a look).I abstracted a template from the report for future use. Hope it may be find some use for other NITCians or in general for everyone. The template (report-template.tar.gz) is being released under Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY).

    Salient Features of the template:

    1. Contains all required pages for a complete report.
    2. Highly customizable.
    3. Examples given for citing and inserting references and footnotes.
    4. PDF generated has clickable links from contents page, citations and URLs.
    5. Provides options to insert pdf title, author name, subject and keywords.

    Additionally, it features the enhanced NITC logo.If you try the template and find any problems, or feel it can be improved with your suggestions, shoot your mails to kartiksinghal [AT] gmail [DOT] com or just post a comment.

    This post was originally posted at my old Posterous blog.

    Update (2011-10-17): Mayank (from the comments below) used my template to create his own for his college (Pune Institute of Computer Technology, Pune University). He has also written a nice and detailed blog post about the same and how to start with LaTeX. His post and link to his template can be found at: http://firesofmay.blogspot.com/2011/10/latex-project-report-template.html Felt really good to see my little work making a difference. :-)

    Update (2011-10-20):  One of Mayank’s friends – Avani – got inspired too and created a template for her college (Bharati Vidyapeeth’s College of Engineering for Women, Pune University) too, link here: http://iam-tas.blogspot.com/2011/10/project-report-template-in-latex.html This is really spreading well! :-)

    Update (2013-02-15):  Update released.

      Good work Kartik. You have given a really flexible report platform to work with for all new LaTeX users.I would to add that please add the CC BY license along with your tex source files or give the web link to the CC license. I think this is what is normally done. Read last line of http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ which asks you to add a link to the license in your work.

      Thanks for feedback, Amarnath. I think, this is the first comment I have received on my *new* posterous blog. :)Regarding the license, I will update the source files as soon as I get some time. The README file and the report.tex file already mention about the license. Though link to license needs to be added there also.

          Hi Surya, sorry for the delay in response, I was on a 3 day vacation.

          I did all my testing on an Ubuntu machine after installing texlive-full package. Your troubles seem to be related to missing packages.

        • surya 10:03 AM on March 26, 2013 Permalink

          hi Kartik,
