I've seen numerous ways to move auxiliary files to a given directory via latexmk, or pdflatex (ex.
latexmk -auxdir=/tmp <file>). But I am using vimtex with auto-compiling, so that whenever I save my tex file, it is automatically compiled and my pdf viewer (just using
evince) is updated too.
What I'd like is for vimtex to create a subdir called
aux in whichever directory my current texfile is, and put any of these auxiliary files in there at each compilation -- keeping just my
.latexmkrc but haven't read any mention of specifying such settings there.
