nicematrix
package.

License type: lppl1.3
Summary description: Several features to improve the typesetting of
mathematical matrices with TikZ
Announcement text:

New option 'small' to draw matrices like the matrices constructed by the environment 'smallmatrix' of LaTeX (with, of course, the functionnalities of the package nicematrix).

This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/nicematrix More information is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/nicematrix

## nicematrix – Improve the typesetting of mathematical matrices with PGF

This package is based on the package array. It creates PGF/TikZ nodes under the cells of the array and uses these nodes to provide functionalities to construct tabulars, arrays and matrices.

Among the features :

- continuous dotted lines for the mathematical matrices;
- exterior rows and columns (so-called border matrices);
- control of the width of the columns;
- tools to color rows and columns with a good PDF result;
- blocks of cells;
- etc.

The package requires and loads
l3keys2e,
xparse,
array,
amsmath,
pgfcore,
and the module `shapes` of
PGF.
