This question already has an answer here:

I need to use a feature that was recently introduced in the pgfgantt package. Currently Overleaf uses TeX Live 2016.

Since opening an account on each of the existing online services is impractical for an individual, I launch this question to the broad TEX.SE community.

Does anybody know of any online LaTeX editors that specifically provide the latest packages?

    If you need something from an "easy-to-install" package, you could simply download the latest version from ctan and upload it to your project on overleaf. – user36296 Mar 15 '18 at 0:11

    @HenriMenke I disagree. My question is not a duplicate because I am specifically asking for online tools that provide the latest packages. The question that you are pointing to does not provide that information and I already linked that source in the body of my question. – codeaviator Mar 15 '18 at 0:21

    A reasonable question. @samcarter seems to have the response. Understand that there is a difference between the "latest texlive" (which involves executable binaries) and the "latest packages" (which might not rely on the latest binaries). – user139954 Mar 15 '18 at 0:40

    @HenriMenke Please don't make such accusation. I always ask when I need help. I learn a lot from this community and I respect it, just like I respect your criticism. – codeaviator Mar 15 '18 at 0:49

    The package you want to use (pgfgantt) just needs one .sty file. Just upload this file with your project and you should be all set. – Corey Mar 15 '18 at 1:28
