Quickly set up a working environment to edit a file.

Project description

sources pypi documentation license

When editing a LaTeX file, I want the file being edited with vim, the compiled file displayed using a pdf viewer, and latex being run whenever something changes, using latexmk. But wait, there is more.

  • I often start a LaTeX document by copying an existing one, as a template.
  • The pdf file may or may not exist when I start working: if I have already been working on this file before, the pdf file exists; if not, it does not exists, and my pdf viewer won’t start on a non-existing file.

This program aims to automate all this process. I built it to process LaTeX files, but it should work with other files too.
