Gummi is an opensource project that started in August of 2009 by
Alexander van der Mey. It is a LaTeX editor written in the C
programming language using the GTK+ toolkit. It was designed with
simplicity in mind, but hopes to attract both novice and advanced
LaTeX writers. Gummi is still under active development and is
released under the opensource MIT license.
