Tools for hacking LaTeX documents

Project Description


Paperweight is a Python package for hacking LaTeX documents.

Paperweight operates on LaTeX documents either on the local filesystem, or as a commit in a git repository. Paperweight can be used to manipulate documents, such as embedded input files and bibliographies, or can provide analytics such as rich information about references made in a document. See the API documentation below for further information.

Paperweight is developed on GitHub under an open BSD license.


You can install the latest Paperweight and its dependencies from PyPI:

pip install paperweight

You can also install the bleeding-edge from git:

pip install git+git://

Alternatively you can develop directly on the git source repository:

git clone
cd paperweight
python develop
python build_sphinx


Paperweight was created as a hack for .Astronomy 6 (2014) in Chicago.
