Light Make – llmk: A build tool for documents

This program is yet another build tool specific for documents. Its aim is to provide a simple way to specify a workflow of processing documents and encourage people to always explicitly show the right workflow for each document.

The main features of the executable llmk are all about the above purpose. First, you can describe the workflows either in an external file llmk.toml or in a document source in the form of magic comments. Further, multiple magic comment formats can be used. Second, it is fully cross-platform. The only requirement of the program is the texlua command; llmk provides a uniform way to describe the workflows available for nearly all environments. Third, it behaves exactly the same in any environment. At this point, llmk intentionally does not provide any method for user configuration. Therefore one can guarantee that for a document with an llmk setup, the process of typesetting the document will be reproduced in any environment with the program.
