This manual is for students who have none or only very basic knowledge of LaTeX. If you know what you are doing, you do not have to adhere to this manual. But then: Proceed at your own risk!
### Clone this repository
### Fork this repository
`git clone`
You should fork the repository to have your own copy inside Gitlab. Press the `Fork` button of this project or click here: [Fork me!](
You can then clone your fork onto your computer via git by running something like this command:
`git clone[YOUR_NAME_HERE]/thesis_framework.git`
This clones this repository into the folder `thesis_framework`. You can write your thesis right in that directory. As this is already a git repository you can track your work on your text with it. We strongly advice you to do so: Commit often!
Push your repository regularly (at least once a day) to our Gitlab server. Our server is backed up every night to a local backup and into the Gauß-IT-Zentrum. When pushing to our Gitlab you will (almost) never loose your progress due to a faulty computer!
### Configuration
You find the basic configuration of your thesis in the file `configuration.tex`. Check it and change it to suit your needs.
