LiveTikZ

Build Status

A live preview for TikZ drawings.

Usage

LiveTikZ is a split-window application, consisting of a powerful text editor for writing TikZ code and a live preview which automatically renders the TikZ code as image.

LiveTikZ uses KDEs KatePart as powerful rich-text editor component and thus provides all the features known from Kate text editor, which includes

  • Syntax Highlighting
  • Text and bracket completion
  • Code folding
  • Automatic indentation
  • Search and replace including escape sequences and regular expressions
  • Dynamic and static word wrap
  • Block selection mode
  • VI Input mode

To render the TikZ code, LiveTikZ relies on pdflatex (either directly or through the latexrun wrapper) to compile the code and Poppler to render the PDF file.

Installation

LiveTikZ is a Qt application with KDE dependencies for the editor component. LiveTikZ can either be installed using the PPA, provided Debian packages or compiled from source.
