Preferred Editor

The preferred editor for long SciPy documents is LyX, a GUI word processor that uses the LaTeX engine, but requires no knowledge of the LaTeX format.

Preferred Format

LyX stores files in its own format, but can import and export LaTeX format files.

If you want to create LaTeX files in a text editor, or by converting from other formats, you can certainly do so. The LaTeX_Project is a good starting point.

Converters For Other Formats

Links coming soon.

  • MS Word
  • tBook XML DTD
  • DocBook XML DTD

Format for Docstrings

If you need markup in SciPy docstrings, please use reStructured_Text.
