The post LaTeX project file system structure has helped me a lot in organizing my LaTeX projects. This got me the thinkin': the R package ProjectTemplate allows the user to build an R project directory structure with template files according to best practices.

Q: Is there anything out there equivalent to this for LaTex?

Quick searches of the web have returned nothing. If there really isn't any equivalent out there, I suppose it wouldn't be terribly difficult to build my own default structure to copy from.

Can you be more specific about what you're looking for? – TH. Feb 27 '11 at 5:39
@TH: I'm looking for a template latex project directory structure with template .tex, .cls, etc., files all following best practices. If nothing like that exists, I'll just start building my own. – lowndrul Feb 27 '11 at 16:07
is your question about the content of the .tex, .cls, etc. files, or is it about where to put them. --- By the way, most of my LaTeX projects don't include any .cls file, only .tex files using standard classes and packages. – Bruno Le Floch Feb 27 '11 at 21:12
I'd be interested in this package as well. Did you ever find something that meets your needs here? – Aaron Massey Feb 13 '13 at 0:05
@AaronMassey: Nope. And, starting a new job, haven't had time to put one together either :( I just created a template directory for myself and use that. – lowndrul Feb 13 '13 at 16:50
