# Awesome Ti*k*Z

Ti*k*Z is a wonderful awesome graph drawing package for TeX/LaTeX/ConTeXt. Unlike other TeX packages, TikZ itself is really huge, its manual contains about 1100+ pages, 100+ chapters. Tens of other packages, and serveral GUI applications are based on TikZ.

This project contains a curated list of awesome TikZ documentations, libraries and resources.
