Title: style-check.py Date: 2014-01-25 17:16 Category: Writing Tags: style-check, python, sublime text Slug: style-check

Writing readable scientific papers is hard, especially for beginners. Although books (e.g., The Elements of Style) and guides are written to promote the best practices, it is still desired that such guides can be automatically applied to our writing in the form of concrete suggestions.

style-check.rb is such a commandline tool to check the grammar and style problems in Latex files. It comes with a predefined set of rules and uses regular expression to find the problems with your writing. It is so useful for me that I am wondering if it can be integrated into my favorate text editor - Sublime Text.

I rewrote style-check.rb with python and created a Sublime Text package style-check. Hope you find it useful.
