Chapter 2 Getting Started Tutorial

This chapter serves as a tutorial for quickly getting started with PreTeXt. We will describe how to run PreTeXt in the cloud using CoCalc, and one path to installing PreTeXt on a local machine (assuming you already have some prerequisite software installed). Then we will generate an example book, as well as a minimal example PreTeXt document and convert them to HTML and PDF. Finally, we will discuss some ways to extend the minimal example. Let's get started.
