I have been working with LaTeX for a couple of years but I don't know anything about pure TeX.

I find this LaTeX cheat sheet useful to remember some commands. So I'd like to have a LaTeX template for writing down my commands on different subjects with such cheat sheet model. Do you know where I can find such template or how to create a new one from scratch with TeX?

You already have the LaTeX source for the cheatsheet in the link you provide. But looking for TeX cheatsheet in Google I've found this one from Joseph H. Silverman Is it what you are looking for? – Ignasi Sep 8 '11 at 8:18
Thanks. Sorry I didn't see the LaTex source in my own link. I always used only the pdf version and I found this link only now for writing this question. Thanks anyway for the other link. – PinoSan Sep 8 '11 at 8:31
If you write an answer I would accept it. Otherwise this post will remain open. – PinoSan Sep 8 '11 at 8:44

At the LaTeX cheat sheet web page you can find both pdf and LaTeX source:

A reference sheet for plain TeX (also pdf and source) can be found in Joseph H. Silverman's web page.

I've once made a cheat sheet with ConTeXt/metafun (looong time ago) which was quite fun. I've uploaded it to https://gist.github.com/1203210

See the image below.

I like your solution but I think is quite simple and dirty for what I am looking for. I'll stick it with the first answer. Thanks anyway maybe I can learn something from your code. – PinoSan Sep 8 '11 at 11:48
+1 for being punny-funny about metafun :) – doncherry Sep 8 '11 at 15:56
