  • How it’s built: These cheatsheets are written originally in Markdown, converted into LaTeX using pandoc and a custom pandoc LaTeX template (very messy), and then generates the PDF. All this is tied together using the Bash script

  • Writing your own: Want to write your own printable coding cheatsheets? It’s easy, as long as you know Markdown! Look at the existing .md source files for ideas, then follow the for instructions on how to re-build the PDFs yourself.

  • License: These cheatsheets and the scripts involved with their build process are (C) Kickstart Coding and released under the GPL 3.0
