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.
