The PreTeXt Guide

Appendix D Text Editors, Spell Check

This appendix has information about using various text editors efficiently with PreTeXt source, along with suggestions for spell-checking. The choice of an editor that suits you is a big part of being a productive author. Despite not being open source, we are partial to Sublime Text, due to its unlimited trial period, reasonable licensing (cost and terms), range of features, community support (plug-ins), and cross-platform support (Linux, Mac, and Windows). So we lead with Sublime Text, but also include Emacs, XML Copy Editor, Atom, Visual Studio Code, and vi/vim. A summary table of schema-aware editors can be found at Section 6.7.
