TeXamator is written in Python/Qt4. It is aimed at helping you making your exercise sheets. Basically, it browses a specified directory, looks for .tex files containing exercices and builds a tree with all your exercises. You can click on an element of the tree to have a preview of the exercise sheet and then add exercises to a list if you wish to. Then you can save your work to a .tex file or you can generate a .dvi (or a pdf or a ps) file. Have a look at the screenshots (not up to date but they still give an overview of the programm) !

To use this program you will need :
LaTeX
dvipng
python-qt4

If you want to use okular as the embedded viewer (recommended), you will also need to install :
python-kde

To start TeXamator, extract the archive, cd to the directory and just type :
python texamator.py

Alternatively, you can extract the archive, browse to the directory and double-click on texamator.py but if you can, prefer launching it in a shell to see LaTeX running in the background.

Visit my website for more information especially if you don't get how the "compile" tab of the preferences work ! Or if you want to use pdflatex with TeXamator.

If you find a bug, if you want me to add a feature, if you want to translate TeXamator, or if you just feel like telling me how much you hate/love this program, send me a mail !

Done ! Thanks. Could you change the homepage of the project in your ebuild file to github or http://alexisfles.ch/en/texamator/texamator.html ? I'm not updating the content here very often.

I use it for another aim:

Since many years I wrote all my letter with latex.
All letters are stored in one directory.

With this tag: \begin{letter}!!!\end{letter}
and this option "-interaction=nonstopmode" instead of "-halt-on-error", due to missing attachments and images and special commands during latex build process, I have a fast overview about my nearly 400 letters.

That's a good idea !

Makes me think maybe I should put this app in another category than "Scientific -> Education".

Anyhow, thanks for your message !

The category is not the point, I think.

For me it would be usefull to have an sort by date option for exercises.
But if this is not useful for you, please don't implement it.

v2.0.1 10 months ago

Fixed a bug : double-clicking an exercise didn't add it to the list anymore

v2 10 months ago

The "+" button wasn't linked to anything anymore for some reason : fixed it.
You can now add more than one exercise (via the "+" button) and multiple selection is enabled on the tree

v.2.0.alpha : A lot of changes in this alpha release (hence the alpha as there are probably a few bugs left)
- Ctrl+C capability on the tree and the list
- Multiple selection on the list
- Multiple "compilation configs"
- Possibility to tweak the header including \begin{document} : if you want to pass special options to the preview package, it is now possible, thanks to Bernard Remond (NBRemond@laposte.net).
- Possibility to tweak the footer thanks to Bernard Remond (again).
- Minor enhancements : the geometry of the windows is saved when you close the app, your preferred configs for exportation are also saved.

v.1.7.6 : German translation supported by Martin Zinser (zinser at zinser.no-ip.info)

v.1.7.5 : fixed a bug : if the app was lunched via a symlink the language would't change.

v.1.7.4 : nothing new here, just added the gpl3 licence to the tarball.

v.1.7.3 : thanks to Yuri Chornoivan, the app has been translated in Ukrainian ! I also added a "Re-run LaTeX" button (you might use it to get references or if you use gnuplot and sometimes need to compile twice). The app weights now a little bit too much to be fully uploaded on kde-apps. Thus, development files have been omited. They are still available on my blog.

v.1.7.2b : thanks to Pavel Fric (http://fripohled.blogspot.com/) the app is now available in Czech !

v.1.7.2 : TeXamator has been translated in French ! If you would like to translate it, just mail me.

v.1.7.1 : fixed a bug with the generate tab in the preferences and added a "delete" feature.

v.1.7.0a : minor changes in the interface

v.1.6.9 : added a wizard to automatically guesses preferences

v.1.6d : changed the app's icon... and the screenshots.

v.1.6c : changed the scrollbar's annoying behaviour

v.1.6b : fixed a little bug : the names weren't correct in the tree... oops.

v.1.6 : a few things weren't intuitive in the last gui : they have been changed. The program itself remains quite the same.

v.1.5d : quick fix : v.1.5c is the same as 1.5b : I uploaded the wrong file. I'll try to upload the good one as soon as possible. In the meantime this version corrects the exporting to dvi bug.

v.1.5c : -fixed a bug that appeared in version 1.5.b when exporting to a dvi (that's what happen when you develop on more than one computer :/).
- the scrollbars work better and when you move up/down exercises from the list, changes are applied directly.

v.1.5b : fixed a bug for users that don't use the preview package.

v.1.5 : some icons have changed.
The search field now works a la google except that you don't have to click on any search button : it works on the fly.

v.1.4.9 : a tab has been added to the preferences menu where you can manage multiple headers so as to export your exercises with user-defined headers.
Synthax highlighting has been added everywhere. To keep the program fast, it has "bugs" : you can enter math mode by typing "$" and leave it with "\end{equation}".

v.1.3c : save button was bugged (encoding problem).

v.1.3b : fixed a bug with default compile options. If you downloaded v.1.3 and if you can't make it work, please download this new version and delete the file ~/.partielator/compile_seq

v.1.3 : if \begin{whatever} is not on the begining of a line, it will work anyway.
You can choose not to use the preview package.
You can choose how to compile your files (with pdflatex instead of latex for example).

v.1.2 : you can now edit the code of an exercise by double-clicking on it once you have added it to the list.
LaTeX is run only when necessary

v.1.1d : The icons have been changed. I now use the Crystal Diamond Icons that look awesome and the untar app weights only 520Ko, with all the icon and Qt Designer files !

v.1.1c : Files have been reorganized and the application now has its own icon (I'm not good at doing that so don't be surprised if it looks awful ;) )

v.1.1 : Main Window's layout has been greatly improved and is customizable.

v.1.0.9b : added a search field and a right click on an element of the tree will expand the tree under this element.
config files are now encoded in utf8.

v.1.0.5b : fixed a bug with the save button and translated the whole code in english (there where still some comments in french)

v.1.0.5 : you can now easily edit preferences and generate random exams
