The tint package, whose name stands for Tint Is Not Tufte , on CRAN offers a fresh take on the excellent Tufte-style for html and pdf presentations.

It marks a milestone for me: I finally have a repository with more "stars" than commits. Gotta keep an eye on the big prize…

Kidding aside, and as a little teaser, here is what the pdf variant looks like:

This release corrects one minor misfeature in the pdf variant. It also adds some spit and polish throughout, including a new NEWS.Rd file. We quote from it the entries for the current as well as previous releases:

Changes in tint version 0.0.3 (2016-10-15)

  • Correct pdf mode to no use italics in table of contents (#9 fixing #8); also added color support for links etc

  • Added (basic) Travis CI support (#10)

Changes in tint version 0.0.2 (2016-10-06)

  • In html mode, correct use of italics and bold

  • Html function renamed to tintHtml Roboto fonts with (string) formats and locales; this allow for adding formats; (PRs #6 and #7)

  • Added pdf mode with new function tintPdf(); added appropriate resources (PR #5)

  • Updated resource files

Changes in tint version 0.0.1 (2016-09-24)
