LaTeX plug-in for Eclipse Logo

etex does exactly what it says on the tin: it's a plug-in for the Eclipse IDE to help with writing LaTeX documents. It features:

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Dynamic document outlining
  • A dynamic autocompletion engine driven by a user-extensible XML database
  • Comprehensive BibTeX reference management


  • The latest versions can be downloaded from SourceForge here


  • Eclipse (currently only version 3 is supported) on any platform
