Creating Cheatsheets


I was thinking of preparing a cheatsheet for string manipulation in Julia for my CL class. However, I have no idea how to write one following the usual cheatsheet format we all know and love. Does anybody know of a blueprint or some kind of pattern I could follow to prepare such a cheasheet efficiently?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!




The last time I looked this template was the best I could find.


It seems great! Thank you very much!

@tk3369 created a DataFrames.jl cheatsheet and may have some tips

Very useful comment! I just messaged him!

I quite like the cheatsheets on the hackingcpp website.

Seems interesting. Was not aware of this format. Any idea/link with guidance for preparing such a cheatsheet?

I really like the rStudio cheat sheet format.

Yes! These are my favourite ones. But, the question is whether there is a latex pattern or some other sort of pattern that one could use as a blueprint for creating new cheatsheets, such as the one that @BeastyBlacksmith mentioned above.

I’ve made a few cheat sheets over the years at Refcards - Michael Goerz

The latex code is linked from that page, or you can go directly to the GitHub repo at GitHub - goerz/Refcards: Various original reference cards (cheat sheets)

To be fair, the “accepted answer” is prettier :wink:

FYI: I just use Google Slides for the DataFrames.jl cheat sheet.

Thanks for the link to the repo! They also look nice and very practical, especially for “dense” cheatsheets where you have to include lots of info. I was thinking of a much “sparser” cheasheet format for time being.

These are really nice, I have to admit!

However, I will stick to @BeastyBlacksmith 's recommendation so that people get to know the latex template and probably develop it into something even better than its current version.
