logreq – Support for automation of the LaTeX workflow

The pack­age helps to au­to­mate a typ­i­cal LaTeX work­flow that in­volves run­ning LaTeX sev­eral times, run­ning tools such as BibTeX or makein­dex, and so on. It will log re­quests like “please re­run LaTeX” or “please run BibTeX on file X” to an ex­ter­nal XML file which lists all open tasks in a ma­chine-read­able for­mat. Com­piler scripts and in­te­grated LaTeX edit­ing en­vi­ron­ments may parse this file to de­ter­mine the next steps in the work­flow in a way that is more ef­fi­cient than pars­ing the main log file. In sum, the pack­age will do two things:

  • en­able pack­age au­thors to use LaTeX com­mands to is­sue re­quests,
  • col­lect all re­quests from all pack­ages and write them to an ex­ter­nal XML file at the end of the doc­u­ment.
