gedit LaTeX: a powerful plugin to work with LaTex

1:57 pm Uncategorized

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!! ;)

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
    I’ve been using the old plugin for a couple of years now. I still prefer it to Kile & co. It’s great to know it’s been ported to Gtk 3!!

    Are you going to work on it vomitting debug messages on stdout/stderr like there’s no tomorrow?

    I found myself looking for a replacement very quickly after finding out that g-l-p made it utterly impractical to launch gedit from a terminal and keep using said terminal afterwards.

    Hi,

    Do you have a link to a source tarball? I would really like to test this on Ubuntu.

    Thank you,

    If you don’t want the debugging messages it is a matter of modifying one line in the __init__.py

    You can get it from http://git.gnome.org/browse/gedit-latex or just yum install gedit-latex in fedora 16 or 17

    Hi Kasper,

    Thanks for your helpful comments. We have made considerable progress in cleaning up the debug spam, but it is a work in progress. We have chosen to leave it enabled for the moment because this is the first release and there is no clean way for us to use the glib debugging routines / level.

    In the mean time, please be a nice gentleman and modify __init__.py if you wish to disable debugging.
