GNOME LaTeX – integrated LaTeX environment

GNOME LaTeX (formerly LaTeXila) is an integrated LaTeX environment for the GNOME desktop. It is free/libre software.

GNOME LaTeX has many useful features needed to edit TeX/LaTeX source code.

It integrates the various tools required for processing LaTeX documents. It provides menus, buttons and templates to assist with the edition and the compilation of documents.

Features include:

  • Build tools: customizable buttons to compile, convert and view a document in one click. Latexmk is used by default, but the low-level commands such as pdflatex, dvipdf and bibtex can also be used.
  • Auto-completion of LaTeX commands.
  • Document structure: a list of chapters, sections, figures, etc. to easily navigate in a document.
  • Symbol tables (Greek letters, arrows, etc).
  • Templates for creating a new document: there are a few default templates, and you can create personal templates.
  • Project management.
  • Spell checking.
  • Forward and backward search: switch between the .tex and the PDF.
  • Some menus and toolbars with the principal LaTeX commands.
  • File browser integrated.
  • All common things found in a text editor…
  • Internationalization support.
