This package is a replacement for the already existing
language-latex package. The design philosophy is if it is valid LaTeX, it gets correct syntax highlighting (within reason). For example, it will correctly highlight the optional arguments to
bibtex has a different syntax to
biber. I have added support for both, but you may need to manually select one or the other. I'll work on making this seamless.
Most features available in
language-latex have been implemented, so all that remains is to tidy up the grammar rules. If you think you can help in anyway, feel free to go to the GitHub page and raise an issue or submit a pull request.
The package will scope grammar if it is installed through Atom like any other package. You may find that
language-latex (if installed) needs to be disabled for this one to work properly.
This package supports a new magic comment of the form
% !TEX syntax = value
See the documentation for details.
These sections detail how to set up the spell checking, linting and formatting packages.
Snippets have been removed from this package. To get them back
mail ₿10 by carrier swallow (African) to the following offshore location you can install my other package
autocomplete-latex, or any other completion package you like.
I recommend using the package
linter-spell to manage spell checking. You will need a version of Aspell or Hunspell on your system, see the package itself for more help. One thing to make sure of is that you specify the absolute path for Hunspell | Aspell.
In addition, you need the package
linter-spell-latex (this provides the LaTeX specific information to
linter-spell, which is the general spell checking package). If the package is not activating, a quick fix is to make the change seen here. To confirm if the package is active, you can paste the following function into the dev tools console (
View -> Developer -> Toggle Developer Tools)
If it returns
true, then it's active. If false, it's not active. Simples. **insert meerkat sounds**.
If things are being spell checked that shouldn't, first make sure it doesn't happen with
language-latex. If the issue is unique to this package, make an issue here. If both packages have the same spell checking issue, make the issue at
linter-spell-latex, and the maintainers there can redirect you if necessary. Always make sure your issue isn't already there before starting a new one.
linter-chktex should work out of the box, assuming you have the full TeXLive install (and if you don't, I'll assume you know enough to install the
chktex package yourself).
The only problem here is getting
latexindent (part of TeXLive install) to work. I resorted to installing a Perl Package manager, and tried running the terminal command
latexindent and installing the package required by the error message until it worked. It seemed to be
YAML::tiny and some Unicode package it needed.
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
