gedit LaTeX: a powerful plugin to work with LaTex
October 2, 2011
Some of you may or may not know about an incredible plugin to convert gedit in an incredible LaTeX editor. This plugin was developed for a few years already by Michael Zeising, providing a lot of features, some of them are:
- LaTeX/BibTex code completion.
- Templates, it allows to easily insert latex snippets.
- Quick building of documents.
- Outline viewer, to have quick access to all parts of the document.
- Tools manager.
- etc etc etc.
Some months ago José Aliste came to me to try to resurrect the project, port it to GTK+ 3 and all our beloved new libraries and try to sanitize it and fix the crashers. Once we moved the project to the gnome server, John Stowers joined us and all together we started to work like crazy. Now, we are proud to say that we have a working latex plugin for gedit that it is quite cleaned up and that can make your life easier.
Also say that it is already packaged for fedora and if you are brave enough to test it and report bugs, and even better provide patches for it would be great. Have fun with it!!
