# LaTeX – minimum working example

Sometimes you just want a simple latex document without all the other frills and whistles.

# Here’s the most basic, simplest latex document

A Hello World example for latex if you will:

% Specifies the type of document you have. \documentclass{article}   % Start of the document. \begin{document}   % Your content. Hello World!   % End of the document. \end{document}

Save this as your latex document, compile it, and you will have a small PDF that says Hello World.

A simple page, ready for you to start typing!
