1 Description

This layer adds support for LaTeX files with AucTeX.

1.1 Features

1.2 BibTeX

For more extensive support of BibTeX files than RefTeX provides, have a look at the BibTeX layer.

2 Install

2.1 Layer

To use this configuration layer, add it to your ~/.spacemacs. You will need to add latex to the existing dotspacemacs-configuration-layers list in this file.

2.2 Auto-completion

Add the layer auto-completion to the variable dotspacemacs-configuration-layers of your dotfile ~/.spacemacs.

2.3 Previewing

To perform full-document previews (that is, aside from the inline previewing under SPC m p), add the following to your .spacemacs under dotspacemacs/user-config:

(add-hook 'doc-view-mode-hook 'auto-revert-mode)

Then when you open up a compiled PDF, the preview will update automatically when you recompile.

2.4 Build command

A build command can be specified via the layer variable latex-build-command.

If LatexMk is specified, the appropriate LatexMk configuration will be applied. (the default on systems with latexmk in the path) This variable can be set to any of the entities in TeX-command-list, including any custom entries you may have added there. To use the regular AucTeX command set latex-build-command to LaTeX as shown below.

dotspacemacs-configuration-layers '(
  (latex :variables latex-build-command "LaTeX"))

2.5 Auto-fill

To enable auto-fill set the variable latex-enable-auto-fill to t.

The variable latex-nofill-env provide the list of environment names where auto-fill-mode will be inhibited.

dotspacemacs-configuration-layers '(
  (latex :variables latex-enable-auto-fill t))

2.6 Folding

Enable folding of text by setting latex-enable-folding to t. Default value is nil.

dotspacemacs-configuration-layers '(
  (latex :variables latex-enable-folding t))
