Is there an example gallery similar to http://texample.net/tikz/examples/ for mostly non-graphical classes, macros, CTAN contributions, etc.?

E.g., a gallery of examples for the packages available at the CV Topic would be handy to select or rule out a package for use.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems.

Thanks for the migration. – rickhg12hs Apr 29 '13 at 20:32
You can find some templates in How to Tex and LaTeX Templates. – Ignasi May 10 '13 at 16:24
They don’t have pictures, but these two questions go roughly in the direction you’re looking for, I think: What packages do people load by default in LaTeX? and What are the available "documentclass" types and their uses? – doncherry May 10 '13 at 16:34

In 2009 I made an overview on "standard" classes (article and book-like, no fancy stuff like CS). You find it at http://tex.lickert.net/dokumente/classoverview/index_en.html

It seems the english full-version has a bug, but the short versions and the German version are still visible.

If you think, it is from interest I may look for an update.

A collection of bibstyles: http://amath.colorado.edu/documentation/LaTeX/reference/faq/bibstyles.pdf (From LaTeX FAQ at C.U.)

This looks like a good start. Wouldn't it be nice to have more that include letter classes, etc.? A gallery of examples for the many CTAN packages would make selection a lot easier. – rickhg12hs Apr 29 '13 at 17:30
I think the bib styles are regular BibTeX styles, not biblatex styles. – Alan Munn May 10 '13 at 18:52
@AlanMunn Thanks. I adapted my answer. – knut May 10 '13 at 20:23
