QuieTeX is a minimal command-line tool which filters and colourizes the output of pdflatex in real-time.

It is not a build tool, it does not do any clever summaries, it just makes it easier to read.

  • Colours warnings yellow

  • TeX input prompt works in errorstopmode and scrollmode

pip3 install quietex
