I don't know for you, but on my side, I'm a big fan of the O'Reilly book presentation.

I was wondering if some of you know where I could find a LaTeX template with the same presentation ?

    I don't know for you but not all of us know what O'Reilly book format is.

  • O'Reilly is a publisher specialized in IT books. An example can be found here : it-ebooks.info/…

  • @Nek So you want a template to produce a book (or whatever) that looks like those of O'Reilly? Then why don't you ask the publisher? If they don't give it to you directly, I don't think you will be able to get hold of it legally...

    They use Docbook format, not LaTeX. Can't we "imitate" or "reproduce" that without being illegal ?

I tried to do something similar for a packtpub book and you can see the result: http://catalatex.blogspot.com.es/2013/08/llibre-de-format-actual.html

If you like it, feel free to adapt to your needs.
