Vim + LaTeX

Intro

I've played around LaTeX this morning. There are different tools for compiling LaTeX files.

Online Web Tools

Writing LaTeX online is possible. It's easy to share the files and no need to install any extra software on the machine. However, it has a long latency for PDF preview. Some good web-based LaTeX editors are as below:
writeLATEX

Desktop GUI Tools

Texmaker

Desktop Command Tools

Under Fedora, install:
  • sudo yum install tetex-latex
Simple setup in .vimrc:
  • map \t <ESC>:!pdflatex %<CR><CR>
