Compressing a Massive TeX Folder for Submitting to Arxiv

I keep forgetting how to do this well, and most of the tricks I find if I just google don’t work for me. So, future Silvia, here’s what you do:

  1. Run pip install arxiv-latex-cleaner
  2. Run arxiv_latex_cleaner --compress_pdf path/to/tex/folder
  3. Compress the new folder path/to/tex/folder-ArXiv and upload that to ArXiv
