Location of installed LaTeX packages for caching CI

#1

I am using miniconda with tectonic to use continuous integration which works awesome, but installing the LaTeX packages every time takes a long time. I have successfully cached miniconda, however tectonic still installs packages on every run - I would like to cache those as well.

Which folder do I need to link to in my cache such that the LaTeX packages are retained and tectonic recognizes that?

(my complete setup is here: https://github.com/PHPirates/travis-ci-latex-pdf)

Solved in https://github.com/tectonic-typesetting/tectonic/issues/159.

Thanks for updating with the link, and sorry for the late reply! Please see this post for more information — in particular, the location will depend on which OS you’re using.
