I'm somewhat new to TeX I have made a few documents using the article class in LaTeX but I don't have any other experience. I was reading through the TeX FAQ when I found this entry: http://www.texfaq.org/FAQ-clsvpkg. Extract from the entry

When I searched in CTAN I didn't get any results for refined classes. Where exactly am I supposed to look for refined classes?

  • It is more or less something like KOMA, memoir and tufte, classes with different default layout, if I'm not mistaken. – TeXnician Aug 6 '20 at 14:08
  • This question seems to be a good address for an extensive overview: tex.stackexchange.com/q/782/220875 and this of course for inspiration: tex.stackexchange.com/q/1319/220875 – phil-elkabat Aug 6 '20 at 14:13
  • @phil-elkabat and TeXnician Thanks a lot. – aklingam Aug 6 '20 at 14:24
  • There is no statistical evidence for "aren't widely liked." I suspect most document classes are the result of one person (each) with OCD and their own brand of aesthetics. – John Kormylo Aug 6 '20 at 15:48

I got my own answer from here: What are the available "documentclass" types and their uses?.

I've decided to use the KOMA script bundle
