TeX Automated with SCons

Project description

PyPi package version Travis CI build status https://ci.appveyor.com/api/projects/status/github/ptomulik/scons-tool-texas?svg=true

This is a SCons tool (set) named TeX Automated with SCons (TeXAS). It wraps several SCons builders with the aim of simplifying compilation of TeX projects. It brings several features, that you may find useful:

  • compact syntax,
  • consistent interface between builders provided by TeXAS,
  • oriented towards compiling named “projects”,
  • automatic generation of SCons aliases for predefined targets,
  • automatic deduction of target file names based on project name,
  • builders for creating tarballs with document sources,
  • support for VariantDir,

INSTALLATION

There are few ways to install this tool for your project.

From pypi

This method may be preferable if you build your project under a virtualenv. To add texas tool from pypi, type (within your wirtualenv):

pip install scons-tool-loader scons-tool-texas

or, if your project uses pipenv:

pipenv install --dev scons-tool-loader scons-tool-texas

Alternatively, you may add this to your Pipfile

[dev-packages]
scons-tool-loader = "*"
scons-tool-texas = "*"

The tool will be installed as a namespaced package sconstool.texas in project’s virtual environment. You may further use scons-tool-loader to load the tool.

As a git submodule

  1. Create new git repository:

    mkdir /tmp/prj && cd /tmp/prj
    touch README.rst
    git init
    
  2. Add the scons-tool-texas as a submodule:

    git submodule add git://github.com/ptomulik/scons-tool-texas.git site_scons/site_tools/texas
    
  3. For python 2.x create __init__.py in site_tools directory:

    touch site_scons/site_tools/__init__.py
    

    this will allow to directly import site_tools.texas (this may be required by other tools).

USAGE EXAMPLE

Assume you have a paper named 'foo' which compiles from single source foo.tex. The paper’s current version is 1.0. The source file foo.tex includes bar.tex which, in turn, includes bar.eps image. You’re unsure, whether LaTeX scanner adds bar.eps to implicit dependencies or not. To compile paper and distribute its sources (for editorial manager e.g.) you may write simple SCons script:

# SConstruct
env = Environment(tools = ['texas'])
dvi = env.TeXASDVI('foo', version = '1.0', dvi_deps = ['bar.eps'])
src = env.TeXASRmDup( dvi[0].children() )
tar = env.TeXASTarGz('foo', src, version = '1.0')

You may compile entire project, or just parts of it:

scons -Q         # build all (papers)
scons -Q foo-dvi # Build only foo-1.0.dvi
scons -Q foo-tgz # Create only the source tarball foo-1.0.tar.gz
scons -Q foo     # Build paper 'foo' (there may be more in the source tree)

For more examples, see user manual (see the section GENERATING DOCUMENTATION).
