Hi! We keep working on the LaTeX Integration project for the Google Summer of Code.
This week we have been working on two different issues:
- On the one hand, improving the code from last week, thanks to the feedback we got on GitHub.
- On the other hand, discussing and improving prototypes, before starting to code the user interface for the TEX parser tool.
The goal has been to connect the back-end of the parser with the user interface:
- A first dialog box will ask for a directory for scanning TEX files. Then, the user could select specific files. After that, the tool parses these files and it shows all bibliographic entries found.
- For displaying these entries, a new dialog box will be opened. Instead of the draft view that we published last week, we have finally chosen a view that allows a comfortable reading of the citations found along all documents.
For a better understanding, each part of the project will be available in different public pull requests so as to make the discussion about implementation details easier.
