## tabularray – Typeset tabulars and arrays with LaTeX3

tables are implemented using commands such as \halign, \noalign, \span, and \omit. In order to implement new features, many macro packages have modified the inner table commands inside . This makes package code complicated, difficult to maintain, and often conflicts with each other.

At present, the 3 programming layer is basically mature. This tabularray package will discard the old \halign commands and directly use 3 functions to parse the table, and then typeset the entire table. Under the premise of being compatible with the basic syntax of 2 tables, this macro package will completely separate the content and style of the table, and the style of the table can be completely set in keyval way.
