3 Flycheck

The default (at least the one I'm using) for C/C++ is c/c++-clang.

  • flycheck-describe-checker
  • flycheck-list-errors

4 AUCTex

  • C-c C-c: tex-compile

5 DocView

Can view pdf in emacs. It is convenient to use the same keybinding for tex-compile: when you press C-c C-c the second time after compilation, it will default to \doc-view.

5.1 navigation

  • C-p C-n C-b C-f still works
  • + and - to adjust scale
  • n and p for page navigation
  • space and delete to page up and down across pages
  • M-< and M-> still works
  • M-g M-g works as jump to page

6 pdf-tools

The doc view produce very blur text. The pdf-view-mode provided by pdf-tools solved this. Also, this package is said to open pdf on demand. It seems to solve my concern for pdf greatly.

Extra bonus:

  • search in text
  • view and edit annotations!
