LaTeX with Sublime Text and Skim on Mac


LaTeX is a word processor and document markup language. It is distinguished by typical word processors such as Microsoft Office and OpenOffice in that the writer uses plain text as opposed to formatted text, relying on markup tagging conventions to define the general structure of a document (such as article, book, and letter), to stylise text throughout a document (such as bold and italic), and to add citations and cross-referencing. A TeX distribution such as TeXlive or MikTeX is used to produce an output file (such as PDF or DVI) suitable for printing or digital distribution.
