automated system for building LaTeX documents


This is a building system for LaTeX documents. It is based on a routine that runs just as many compilations as necessary. The module system provides a great flexibility that virtually allows support for any package with no user intervention, as well as pre- and post-processing of the document. The standard modules currently provide support for bibtex, dvips, dvipdfm, pdftex, makeindex. A good number of standard packages are supported, including graphics/graphicx with automatic conversion between various graphics formats and Metapost compilation.

Some optional parts require the installation of suggested Debian packages: imagemagick (graphics conversion), r-cran-knitr, texlive-bibtex-extra (biblatex), texlive-binaries (aleph), texlive-latex-extra (cweb, minitoc, moreverb, multibib, nomencl, ntheorem), texlive-latex-recommended (beamer, index, listings), texlive-pictures (gnuplottex), transfig (conversion from XFig format).

pythontex from texlive-extra-utils requires python3-prompt-toolkit and python3-pygments.
