I initially asked this on the LaTeX stack exchange, but there seems to be little input: https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/712127/compiling-glossaries-with-neovim

TL;DR: how do I set up the compiler to work with the glossaries package.

Currently I'm using vim-tex with the tectonic compiler to write pdfs using LaTeX. I'm trying to compile a document with glossaries (which uses makeindex). How do I set up the compiler to run makeindex automatically (or not; if there is a way to run it manually, I can live with that too)?

Current init.vim setup:

let g:vimtex_compiler_method = 'tectonic'
let g:vimtex_compiler_tectonic = {
        \ 'out_dir' : '',
        \ 'hooks' : [],
        \ 'options' : [
        \   '--synctex'
        \ ],

Sample document I want to compile:

    name ={Topology},
    description = {Topology}

  • Please don't crosspost. Either keep this question or the one on LeTex SE. Thank you.

  • Hm, given the vimtex refs in the TeX - LaTeX post, perhaps it should be migrated here.

    I'm choosing to close this because it doesn't provide enough detail. Please either edit to include the relevant detail from the TeX - LaTeX post, or see about migrating the other post here (you can work with TeX - LaTeX mods to make that happen, I think).
