LaTeXila is a LaTeX editor for the GNOME desktop. It is a free/libre software (GPLv3+ license). It runs on GNU/Linux, OpenBSD, Mac OS X and probably other UNIX systems.
The idea of LaTeXila is to always deal directly with the LaTeX code, while simplifying as most as possible the writing of this LaTeX code.
Here are the main features of LaTeXila 3.24, the current stable version released in March 2017.
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)

Document structure: a list of chapters, sections, figures, etc. to easily navigate in a document. (screenshot)
Symbol tables (Greek letters, arrows, etc). (screenshot)
Templates for creating a new document: there are a few default templates, and you can create personal templates. (screenshot)
Easy projects management. (screenshot)
