Jérôme Laurens, maker of iTeXMac, is being *very* ambitious for his 2.0
version, and he contacted me for some ideas/contributions on the ConTeXt
side of things.
First, he wanted some sample documents and/or templates. Since every
iTeXMac document is actually a directory, and it is project-based, I was
wondering if there were any folks who had good examples using products/
environments. Yes, I'm keeping my eye on the released manuals. :)
Secondly, he asked which texexec were the best to expose in the GUI. I
came up with this list off the top of my head:
(The engine switches will probably be set on a project level, he said,
and --pdfarrange and the like would probably be exposed in another GUI
Is there anything else really compelling to expose in a GUI?
Hans, he also has the ability to point at different source trees on a
preference and project basis. I will look at the minimal trees, to see
what needs to be done to support them within his framework.
Mac users can take a look at the rough but promising project here:
