  • Come in if you are using VSCode.

    Years ago, I turned the whole set-up into VSCode and documented them here. Some extensions I used are really powerful and even the author of LaTeX-Workshop doesn't know them, e.g., Hypersnips (according to here). It's now over years and most of the functionalities are stable, so maybe it's a good time to promote it here and popularize this incredible workflow inspired by Gilles Castel.
  • Is it worth learning LaTeX for live notetaking?
    2 projects | /r/LaTeX | 28 Feb 2023
    First of all, I'm still sad that we lost Gilles Castel in 2022, RIP. I myself implemented Gilles Castel's solution in VSCode in this repo, and took ~10 rigorous notes (each around 100 pages) in class, and I'm happy with the result. Some post-production is needed, but I only use my free time to do so. Hence it's all fine. After you get proficient, you can literally do everything in real time, as I'm currently doing. I think it's essential to understand your tool well if you're going to work with it in the next decades (I'm assuming this for you, but if you're not, then nevermind), hence some investment is not meaningless.
  • Survey: your LaTeX editor
    2 projects | /r/LaTeX | 26 Jan 2022
    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!
