LaTeXila is a LaTeX editor for the GNOME desktop. It is a free/libre software (GPLv3+ license).

Here are the main features of LaTeXila 3.26, the current stable version released in September 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)

  • Completion of LaTeX commands. (screenshot)

  • 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)

  • Spell-checking.
  • Jump to the associated position between the .tex and the PDF with Ctrl+click.
  • Some menus and toolbars with the principal LaTeX commands.
  • Integrated file browser.
  • All common things found in a text editor…
  • Translations.

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. This permits to concentrate on the content and the structure of the document instead of being distracted by its presentation. You can read more information about the principles behind the LaTeXila user experience in this blog post.
