    ✍️ A way to integrate LaTeX, VS Code, and Inkscape in macOS

    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!

  • quiver

    A modern commutative diagram editor for the web.

    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.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
