Subject: RFP: equalX -- a GUI interface to latex programs to generate equations
Date: Tue, 25 Jun 2013 11:44:02 +0200
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Description: EqualX is just a graphical interface to latex and a bunch of
conversion programs for aiding you write equations faster in
latex and export them to other applications.

Still an infant (latest version 0.6.0), EqualX provides a cool, modern
and an intuitive interface and even lets you
customize the window layout to your liking. Although, there are some
good competitors: KLatexFormula on Linux
and the great LatexIt on MacOS, EqualX grows steady and fast to the
point when it will even surpass its competitors
 in the number of features. In some areas, right now EqualX beats both
of them: open any file format (eps,ps, pdf,
png, jpg)  saved by EqualX, 2 cool toolbars containing latex symbols and
predefined templates, a completion menu in the editor
 to help edit your equation easier, possibility to change preview
background's color. Many more features are pending.

I am the developer of EqualX and I would like my application to be
available to debian and Ubuntu users (since Fedora
has already a sponsor to pack it), but I do not have enough knowledge
and time to do the packaging. If someone can
 take care of the packaging, I will have more time and pleasure to
continue writing code.
Thank you very much!
