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

Following a discussion on TeX StackExchange (tex.stackexchange.com/questions/510841/nicematrix-and-tikz-external-optimize) this version allows the utilisation of 'nicematrix' with both 'standalone' and the optimization of Tikz externalization.

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;
- tabular notes;
- etc.

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