GNU TeXmacs

Scientific text editor

TeXmacs is a text editing platform which is specialized for scientists. It is ideal for editing structured documents with different types of content. It has robust support for mathematical formulas and plots. It can also act as an interface to many external systems for computer algebra (i.e. Maxima, Pari, gTybalt, Axiom or Giac), numerical analysis or statistics such as R and Octave. TeXmacs is completely extensible via Guile.
