Kile

Kile

Kile is a user-friendly LaTeX source editor and TeX shell for KDE. LaTeX is a text-processing system derived from TeX, a program developed originally in 1977 by Donald Knuth to help him layout his work professionally, obtaining a work similar to a typesetter's.

Kile allows you to use all the functionality of LaTeX in a graphical interface, giving you easy, immediate, and customized access to all programs for LaTeX codecompletion, compiling, postprocessing, debugging, conversion and viewing tools; you also get very handy wizards, a LaTeX reference and a powerful project management.

The source editor is a multi-document editor designed for .tex and .bib files. Menus, wizards and auto-completion are provided to assist with tag insertion and code generation. A structural view of the document assists with navigation within source files.

The TeX shell integrates the various tools required for TeX processing. It assists with LaTeX compilation, DVI and postscript document viewing, generation of bibliographies and indices and other common tasks.

Kile can support large projects consisting of several smaller files.
