  • Survey: your LaTeX editor

    As a CS student, I and my friend think it's probably a good idea to create a brained-new LaTeX-focus editor, which solves the above problems and with modern UI (yep, I know texmacs can pretty much do all the jobs I mentioned, but hey, it's almost 20 years old now) design and relatively user-friendly learning curve. Hence, I'm here to ask you guys what's exactly the problems you have with your currently LaTeX editors, with your personal environment (like OS, Editor, additional (special) configuration). Here is mine, as a starting point. I would like to hear any of your comments, suggestions, and opinions, since this little project is still in the discussion stage, nothing is decided!

    Extendability: since VSCode has very few plugins (due to a relatively small users group) for LaTeX, hence it's hard to add any functionality to my workflow in VSCode, like drawing figures in Inkscape (yes, I adapted the same workflow from Gilles Castel), drawing commutative figures in quiver and so on.

    For diagrams (category theory, algebra, etc) people often use tikz or packages built on top of it. Have a look at tikzcd. There is a nice graphical editor here https://q.uiver.app/, which can export tikzcd code to copy and paste into latex.
