GNU TeXmacs
GNU TeXmacs is a "wisywig" text editor with a high ergonomy and typesetting quality. You can compose structured documents containing mathematical formulas; you can also use it as an interface to computer algebra systems (ie maxima, pari, gtybalt, or yacas). It was inspired by both TeX and GNU Emacs. It supports Guile/Scheme, which lets you adapt the interface to specific needs and extend the editor.
