I need to effectively compile many .tex files to .pdf. As far as I know, LaTeX (so XeLaTeX too) takes a lot of time for loading itself to memory, but a compilation process is fast. Now I have a program which calls XeLaTeX every time for every .tex document, so it takes a lot of time for loading compiler every time.

I also tried to found something like TeX Daemon, which could be called when it need and could produce .pdf very fast, but I only found this old project: https://github.com/brianmhunt/texd

Are there any methods for preloading TeX compiler to memory or some daemonds?

  • you might want to look at mylatex (or the extended version of that mylatexformat) to make a custom format if all your documents share a common preamble – David Carlisle Feb 28 '17 at 13:02
