GNOME LaTeX is a LaTeX editor for the GNOME desktop. It is a free/libre software (GPLv3+ license).
GNOME LaTeX was previously named LaTeXila. The application has been renamed in December 2017.
Here are the main features of GNOME LaTeX 3.28, the current stable version released in April 2018.
Build tools: customizable buttons to compile, convert and view a document in one click. Latexmk is used by default, but the low-level commands such as pdflatex, dvipdf and bibtex can also be used. (screenshot 1, screenshot 2 and screenshot 3)

The idea of GNOME LaTeX is to always deal directly with the LaTeX code, while simplifying as most as possible the writing of this LaTeX code. This permits to concentrate on the content and the structure of the document instead of being distracted by its presentation.
