The main document is the thesis.tex file which you need to customize for your thesis project. Line 13 contains the link to the document class and needs to be adapted to your particular project: german for a thesis in German, english for a thesis in English, ba for a Bachelor’s thesis, ma for a Master’s thesis, expose for a project proposal, interim for an interim report, report for a final F/M-project report. You can add any LaTeX package you additionally require for your thesis as long as those are compatible with XeTeX (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XeTeX for more information). The list of packages already included through the template is: blindtext, graphicx, url, geometry, xifthen, wrapfig, textpos, babel, multicol, natbib, xcolor, subfig. Feel free to add packages as needed, but do not change the fonts, font sizes, and page geometry. All relevant metadata such as title, examiners’ names, German and English abstract, etc. can be provided in the preamble of thesis.tex. Further down, you will find a section in thesis.tex with some sample chapters provided through \input commands. This is where you will add your own chapters, which shall be physically located in the “chapters” folder to keep the project tidy. Happy TeXing!
