Emacs Prophet; TeX Evangelist.

God bless arara.

I'm a TeX systems enthusiast. I don't just push serious authors to use LaTeX, but I advertise the capability of TeX systems for background-process publishing. I'm currently researching for an article on TeX in Industry.

Recommended TeX editors

FAQ:

  • Why download the complete TeX distribution? It's so big!
  • I'm on Linux. Why install 'vanilla' TeX Live when my package repositories already contain it?

Believe me, unless you really know what you're doing, it's always simpler to just download the full, vanilla TeX Live from TUG. Space is cheap – your time is not. Don't believe me?

License fuddling

It's come to my attention that all content on this site is automatically under Creative Commons -- a license not terribly useful for LaTeX. Thus, I here relicense all TeX/LaTeX/expl3 code under the LaTeX Project Public License (LPPL), version 1.3c or later. Document-embedded code (i.e. Lua, Python, sh, etc. that is initially processed by TeX) is also licensed under the LPPL v1.3c or later.

Just to clarify, is this a test post? You may wish to see the official sandboxes.

comment SX — Stack Exchange for Emacs!
@SteveBuzonas Chat support is on the radar, but isn't officially planned yet. There is a way to do it, but it's a little... complicated. There is much to be done for full SE support before this is considered, though.

comment How do display names relate to at-mentions?
I'll note to any StackExchange staff reading this post: the comment discussion on Jeff's answer remains seemingly unresolved. Using the official Unicode translation tables would be a lot better – everyone can implement the same standard :)
