Semi-productive procrastination: The LaTeX motivator.

Two things that might be relevant for understanding what I did here:

  1. I’ve recently started learning Python and I love it, thus try to write as much code as possible in Python.
  2. I’ve also recently started writing my thesis, and I try to write as much as possible.

Voila, the “LaTeX motivator” script is born (based on a version by my supervisor… but mine has special effects). Download it off github, copy the scripts (.py plus the .pl wordcount script) into the directory with your tex files, run latex-motivator.py, select your favourite motivating animal, and off you go. Now all you have to do is write a thesis. Easy!

Update: It seems that the stats.csv output is a bit broken. Will fix once I’ve written enough to make the dino happy.
