Setup guide for a plain text thesis

To write a plain text thesis you need the following free and open-source software:

  • plain text editor if you don’t have one yet (I like using Atom)
  • the file conversion system pandoc
  • the reference manager Zotero
  • (optional) for managing the files stored in a Git repository I use the Github desktop application
