  • My uses for vimwiki have dried up... and it makes me a little sad
    I use vimwiki almost daily, but it's not professional use, just daily notes and organizing my life. I started using zim but I found I really missed writing/editing with vim. Then I found vimwiki. There are things I'm not super happy about with it. I saw that /u/lervag (love his vimtex plugin) released a wiki plugin and I was/am interested in it, but I have so much in my wiki right now that I don't want to deal... Source: about 1 year ago
  • Note Taking Applications, Beyond the Doc
    Definitely get vimtex and set it up so you can view the compiled document in one window, and your notes in the other. Get used to vim a bit with some vim tutorial (there are a bunch out there), and have latex shortcuts you use in all your documents. Source: about 1 year ago
  • I like Tabasco.
    I do think VSCode is a great tool and I recommend it frequently to people, but I still want to set the record straight here. Yes, vim is obviously limited in the sense that as a CLI app it doesn't draw it's own PDF or HTML windows, that's fair. But it can remote control your favorite PDF viewer or browser for roughly the same functionality. I'm currently writing my thesis using vimtex and it's quite smooth. And... Source: about 1 year ago
  • Is there a way to render advanced latex on Obsidian?
    Obsidian is limited by its use of markdown files. You can use Overleaf, Vimtex, or LaTeX workshop on VS Code to render your tex documents. Source: about 1 year ago
  • What are all the accepted "inner" motion arguments?
    Some language-specific plugins like vimtex also include their own text objects. Source: over 1 year ago
  • [VimTeX] vim on mac lags when trying to use includegraphics[]{} for attaching image to a .tex file
    I am new to Vim and LaTeX, but I'm trying to learn both at the same time so I started using VimTeX to edit .tex files on MacVim. I got almost everything working now (vimtex itself, zathura, autocomplete, etc.), but one thing. And that is Vim won't respond for a while whenever I try to include an image using \includegraphics[]{} from \usepackage{graphicx}. By typing so, MacVim will request permission to access...

  • Vim + LaTeX
    In that blog post that is done using the vim plugin vimtex, which gives you syntax highlighting, indentation, etc, and also provides a way of automatically compiling your latex code into a PDF. Source: over 1 year ago
  • [HELP] Configuring Vim-tex in NvChad config
    Hi, I've been trying to configure vim-tex working on the NvChad configs. I got the :VimtexCompile working and giving me output pdf. But the usual ll is giving me these errors. Also in vim {{ would expand to \left{ \right}. It's not working with NeoVim. I'm using LuaSnip with friendly-snippets with the default config in NvChad. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Help find the font used by VimTex team

  • Just started learning LaTeX. I have a few questions
    Emacs is a good software for LaTeX along with its plugin AUCTeX but you don't need to switch to Emacs since you already are a Vim user. I would recommend to install VimTex (make sure it is NOT VimLatex) using any package manager, e.g. VimPlug. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Just started learning LaTeX. I have a few questions
    Use the VimTex plugin. Its probably the best LaTeX vim editor, its amazing! Source: over 1 year ago
  • How do I run view .tex files as pdf in real time?
    If you're using nvim then take a look at Vimtex. Source: over 1 year ago
  • vim-latex: How do I prevent the main.log window from opening or focusing each time I compile my main.tex file?
    Ah, no, sorry; I'm not the author of vim-latex (aka LaTeX-Suite). I'm the author of VimTeX, another LaTeX plugin for Vim/neovim. ;). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Not so intensive syntax highlighting for LaTeX - how to?
    Well, then disable Treesitter and use your native colourscheme syntax highlighting or vimtext'. Source: over 1 year ago
  • best distro for LaTeX workflow ?
    I would also strongly recommend vimtex, if you aren't using it already. Besides integrating with your compilation method of choice, it provides a lot of features and quality of life improvements for working with LaTeX, and it is actively maintained by the awesome u/lervag.

  • *Laughs in autocmd*
    Https:// and a Pdf viewer that supports "forward search", like Zathura. Arrange Vim and Zathura side-by-side. Read vimtex instructions on how to sync them, so as you move in vim, zathura will scroll with it. You'll have to research how to set this up. Source: about 2 years ago
