New on CTAN: SpiX
I am happy to publish a new package: SpiX. I have a directory of hundreds of tex files, with slightly different compilation process (one or two lualatex passes, or latex, with or without a bibliography…) and I wanted a way to store the compilation process *inside* the tex file itself. It is the same idea as Arara, but simpler: configuration is just plain console commands (no yaml format, nothing specific to SpiX, no external file for new rules).
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/support/spix More information is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/spix
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Manfred Lotz CTAN is run entirely by volunteers and supported by TeX user groups. Please join a user group or donate to one, see https://ctan.org/lugs .
SpiX – Yet another TeX compilation tool: simple, human readable, no option, no magic
SpiX offers a way to store information about the compilation process for a tex file inside the tex file itself. Just write the commands as comments in the tex files, and SpiX will extract and run those commands.
Everything is stored in the tex file (so that you are not missing some piece of information that is located somewhere else), in a human-readable format (no need to know SpiX to understand it).
