TaylorType

Registered 2010-03-01 by Louis Taylor

TaylorType is a program which speeds up the creation of LaTeX documents.

It is a small program written in python which will compile any LaTeX document you give it with a single click. The emphasis is on a very lightweight and simple gui, the only interaction happens in the system tray, with two file selectors and a checkbox.

* It is is a small icon in the system tray, which can be configured to
compile any LaTeX document.
* It has some simple preferences, an option for different pdf viewers
will be added soon.
* It currently supports error messages for both LaTeX and BibTeX.
* It uses gtk for the frontend and pure python for the backend.
* It depends on LaTeX, BibTeX and common gnome components. including
pynotify and gconf.
