latexmk and auctex
Compiling LaTeX is a pain. LaTeXmk is a Perl script (eww) which iterates compilations, including of the bibliography, until complete.
auctex-latexmk integrates it with AucTeX‘s
C-c C-c cycle. You need to add the following to
.latexmkrc (the former to stop the compilation process hanging when you make a mistake, and the latter because emacs doesn’t know how to tell latexmk to compile pdfs).
$pdflatex = 'pdflatex --shell-escape -interaction=nonstopmode -file-line-error -synctex=1 %O %S'; $pdf_mode = 1;
Other useful commands include
latexmk -Cremoves all automatically generated files
latexmk -pvccontinuously recompiles
