latexmake.py

Overview

Latexmake completely automates the process of generating a LaTeX document. Given the source files for a document, latexmake issues the appropriate sequence of commands to generate a .dvi or .pdf version of the document. Latexmake can run as a custom builder for the Eclipse-Plugin "Texlipse". Latexmake also has the ability to run in the background watching source files for changes and rebuilding a project when changes happen.

Latexmk.py was originally written by Marc Schlaich. His (now unmaintained) version is available at https://github.com/schlamar/latexmk.py
