Summary description: Yet another TeX compilation tool: simple, human
readable, no option, no magic

Announcement text:

I am happy to publish a new package: SpiX.

I have a directory of hundreds of tex files, with slightly different
compilation process (one or two lualatex passes, or latex, with or
without a bibliography…) and I wanted a way to store the compilation
process *inside* the tex file itself. It is the same idea as Arara, but
simpler: configuration is just plain console commands (no yaml format,
nothing specific to SpiX, no external file for new rules).


This package is located at
