A lightweight LaTeX Plugin for Sublime Text 3
Latest commit c216aec Dec 4, 2016 @randy3k no further maintenance



Important: I guess LaTeXBox has finished its historical goal after the LaTeX syntax has merged into Sublime Text. Additionally, the rapid recent development of LaTeXTools shames the lake of functionalities of LaTeXBox. Sorry guys, I am giving up LaTeXBox and switch to LaTeXTools (and you should too).

For those who loves the keybinds shipped by LaTeXBox, I have moved the keybinds to a new package LaTeXZeta which is compartiable with LaTeXTools.

If you have a strong interest to be a maintainer of LaTeXBox, please let me know.

LaTeXBox is a multi-platform LaTeX package for Sublime Text 3. It works on OSX, Windows and Linux. LaTeXBox aims to be lightweight, extensible but self contained. If you are looking for a full feature package, see, for example LaTeXing or LaTeXTools. A lot of ideas are actually inspired by these two packages. So why this package? If you love customization or want to be able to hack somethings, this package would be your choice as LaTeXing is not open source and LaTeXTools is too bulky.


  • OSX, Windows and Linux support
  • Automatic process of generating a LaTeX document by using latexmk
  • AutoCompletion for \ref, \cite, \include, \input, \includegrpahics etc...
  • Keybinds for mathematics symbols, e.g. `a types \alpha.
  • Backward and forward sync of various PDF viewers
  • Automatch for (), [], {}, \(\), \(\), \{\}, \left - \right pairs, $$ and quotation marks.
  • More…


Sublime Text 2 compatibility

While it is possible to backward port to ST2, I would rather keep it ST3 only for easier maintenance.
