LaTeX Plugin - LaTeXing for ST2 and ST3

LaTeX Plugin - LaTeXing for ST2 and ST3

Postby Chris--- on Sat Apr 20, 2013 4:51 pm

Hi,

after trying and evaluating several programs to write LaTeX files I ended up frustrated with the idea to write my own one. Before I started I thought about what I would like to achieve and one major priority is the cross platform support and a fast and efficient way to complete my work.

With the aim to complete my PhD thesis with it I wrote a plugin for Sublime Text 2. After playing around with the available LaTeXTools for ST2 I started to improve it but after a while I realised I wrote so much from scratch and added so many new functions that I basically created a brand new plugin.

Now I am at a position where I could need some beta tester to improve the software even more and eventual add new features. Please sent me a PM if you are interested.

The official website: http://www.latexing.com

You can also give me some feedback here to the feature list below; what do you think?

  • Full project support
  • Smart fill of the following core commands: include, input, includegraphics, cite, bibliography
  • Forward and Reverse search by using the synctec function
  • “Goto Symbol” support, jump to any part, chapter, section, paragraph, label, input, include, subfile, bibliography, or LATEXing option in your LATEX file
  • User defined temp directory and possibility to clean a build
  • TeXLive, MikTeX, and MacTeX support
  • Search for package documentation using “texdoc” commando line tool if available
  • Count your words by using “texcount” commando line tool if available
  • Internet Thesauruses and Dictionaries for selected words, for example via Dictionary.com, Pons.eu, or Thesaurus.com
  • Bibsonomy.com support for references; import single reference, multiple references by tag, or all missing reference keys
  • Support of the following packages: subfiles, cleveref, acronym, currfile
  • Support of cwl files provided by the separate LaTeX-cwl extension
  • Dynamic load of commands for included packages
  • Smart creation of labels for parts, chapters, sections, paragraphs, caption of figures and tables
  • Windows and MacOS X (Linux Version will be released eventually later, need some tester)
  • many more …
Cheers
Chris

This is great! Also because the development on LaTeXTools has pretty much stopped. I think the fixes and enhancement in this pull request for Latextool are pretty important and should make it in a new plugin: https://github.com/SublimeText/LaTeXTools/pull/120

I send you a PM to test. I can't see the feature list though...

Now the official website http://www.latexing.com is online, with a couple of screenshots, so I hope that helps to imagine how LaTeXing will work and perhaps motivate a couple more to help. The plugin will be released for the public soon.

Great, good to see another latex plugin.
Latextools sometimes drives me crazy....
Are you planing to make it "open source"?

Yes I had the same feeling with the Tools thats why I started LaTeXing a couple of month ago.. ;) Normally It should be relatively bug free because I am working with it for month and wrote several papers and reports but I am sure there are problem

I am not sure about open source, to ensure that it will be developed for years I may also choose a different way. If someone is serious interested in supporting the project, development, customise, complete snippets, commands please let me know. A bigger team could always be helpful!

https://github.com/Chris---/LaTeX-cwl is required for the CWL support, I will complete a manual about it the next week, if you would like to contribute... feel free.

I would also encourage open sourcing it. Pretty much all Sublime Text packages are open source and that is one of the great things about ST. LatexTools, for example, has 24 open pull request some of which are very significant contributions (and many more were already accepted before development slowed down).

What is about ST3 compatibility?

Hi, thanks for your opinion gregor.hoch. I will think about it but for now I will keep it close source and try to encourage some people to join the development and test team. I completely understand the positive aspects of open sourcing it but a LaTeX plugin is a huge project and needs more documentation and perhaps also to be closed for now. We can talk about that another time, perhaps you would like to join, if so just drop me a message.

ST3? Aye!

ST3 support is great! I still didn't get to writing this paper but it's going to be my test case for LaTeXing and I will report back once I have done that. I also hope that the new licensing model ensures future development particularly after the experience with LaTeXTools‎. So just wanted to say that I support the move as a user! (the price could be lower but I guess that is also connected with providing an unlimited test version)

New feature are still coming, just check the website regularly for updates. The ST3 support is already stable and once the Package Control is available for ST3 it becomes easier to stay up to date.

Thank you for the feedback. Yes the license model is exactly for the purpose to ensure that the development will progress regularly and new features are going to implement based on user wishes.

Regards
