The HaTeX package

[Tags:bsd3, library, test]

The LaTeX project site states: "LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system". This library provides a bridge between that system and Haskell (i.e. it is a LaTeX DSL).

Write LaTeX documents with all the advantages you already have in Haskell (recursion, type system, high order functions, ...), create a LaTeX backend for your own program, make analysis of LaTeX code through its Abstract Syntax Tree (AST), find another way to pretty-printing values, ...

See the examples directory in the source distribution to look some simple examples. It would be good to get you started. HaTeX User's Guide is available at

HaTeX ReadMe

HaTeX is the LaTeX syntax implementation done in Haskell. Check a list of examples of usage in the examples directory. A good starting point may be simple.hs. Run the script using the main function.

Installation notes

To install HaTeX, use cabal-install. $ cabal install HaTeX
