TeXwrapper has been implemented to facilitate the interfacing of (La)TeX with the quickfix mode of the VIM text editor. It allows you to run TeX and some tools like BibTeX or MakeIndex at once. If an error occurs, it scans the transcript files and sends a "compiler style" error message to stderr. This program may also be useful with other text editors (like SciTE) which are able to deal with compiler's error output.
OOoLatexEquation is an OpenOffice.org macro designed to manipulate LaTeX equations. It allows you to create equations and insert them into OOWriter and OOImpress documents as PNG, EPS, and EMF images, while the LateX characteristics are saved in the image attributes. The equations are created with and can be edited through an intuitive GUI. OOoLatexEquation supports an inline mode as in TexPoint which expand simple latex code into appropriate characters using specific TrueType fonts.
BHL is an Emacs mode which enables you to convert plain text files into HTML, LaTeX, Texinfo, SGML (Linuxdoc), and TXT files. The BHL mode handles three levels of sections, many sectioning styles, common font-styles, any kind of lists, tables, URLs, horizontal rules, and Wiki names. BHL handles a list of links (lol) and a table of contents (toc): you can browse the lol and the toc, insert them where you want, and update the sections' numbers with one keystroke.
scbib is a bibliography manager written in Scheme. It handles bibliographic data written in simple S-expressions and generates a bibtex file and an HTML file from the S-expressions file. It is capable of obtaining bibliographic data using the Amazon Web service. A simple converter for importing a bibtex file is also included.
The algorithms package is aimed at being both simple and powerful for typesetting pseudo-code/algorithms in LaTeX documents. Since it uses the (La)TeX engine to generate its output, the results obtained are frequently of high-quality. The package comes with a manual and is quite easy to use in day-to-day documents.
BibORB is a Web-based tool for managing bibliographies. It allows the sharing of bibliographies and provides an interface for editing references. It also eases the management of electronic versions (.ps, .pdf, etc.) of papers associated with your references. Classification is possible using groups, and search functions are included. BibTeX bibliographies can be imported, and selected references can be exported to BibTeX, Ris, and DocBook format.
References for TeX and Friends is an ongoing project which provides a help file for LaTeX (and its friends like ConTeXt, Metapost, Metafont, etc.) using a state-of-the-art source format, DocBook/XML. Various output formats can be generated from the source file. Anyone can write a converter for any desired output format. Because the source file is XML, the easiest way to do this might be to use XSLT.
