It is particularly well-suited for complex documents such as technical documents or critical editions where a lot of left-to-right commands intertwine with Arabic writing. arabluatex is able to process any Arab\TeX\ input notation. Its output can be set in the same modes of vocalization as Arab\TeX, or in different roman transliterations. It further allows many typographical refinements. It will eventually interact with some other packages yet to come to produce from \verb|.tex| source files, in addition to printed books, \texttt{TEI xml} compliant critical editions and/or lexicons that can be searched, analyzed and correlated in various ways. \section*{License and disclamer} ArabLuaTeX -- Processing ArabTeX notation under LuaLaTeX Copyright ⓒ 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 Robert Alessi <\verb|alessi@robertalessi.net|> Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software for any purpose with or without fee is hereby granted, provided that the above copyright notice and this permission notice appear in all copies.

Please send error reports and suggestions for improvements to Robert Alessi: \begin{itemize} \item email: \href{mailto:alessi@robertalessi.net}{alessi@robertalessi.net} \item website: \url{https://sr.ht/~ralessi/arabluatex} \item comments, feature requests, bug reports: \url{https://todo.sr.ht/~ralessi/arabluatex} \end{itemize} This release of arabluatex consists of the following source files: \begin{itemize} \item \verb|arabluatex.ins| \item \verb|arabluatex.dtx| \item \verb|arabluatex.lua| \item \verb|arabluatex_voc.lua| \item \verb|arabluatex_fullvoc.lua| \item \verb|arabluatex_novoc.lua| \item \verb|arabluatex_trans.lua| \end{itemize} \section*{Installation} \label{sec:installation} \begin{enumerate} \item Run \verb+'lualatex arabluatex.ins'+ to produce the \verb+arabluatex.sty+ file; \item To finish the installation you have to move the following files into a directory where LaTeX can find them. See the FAQ on \verb|texfaq.org| at \url{https://texfaq.org/FAQ-inst-wlcf} for more on this: \begin{itemize} \item \verb|arabluatex.sty| \item \verb|arabluatex-patch.sty| \item \verb|arabluatex.lua| \item \verb|arabluatex_voc.lua| \item \verb|arabluatex_fullvoc.lua| \item \verb|arabluatex_novoc.lua| \item \verb|arabluatex_trans.lua| \end{itemize} \item Additionally, those who use emacs with AUC\TeX\ may copy \verb|arabluatex.el| to their \verb|~/.emacs.d/auctex/auto| local directory. This will enable the appropriate hooks for ArabLua\TeX\ in AUC\TeX. \end{enumerate} \section{Development, Git Repository} \label{sec:devel-git-repos} \subsection*{Browse the code} \label{sec:browse-code} You can browse ArabLua\TeX\ repository on the web: \url{http://git.robertalessi.net/arabluatex}\\ or\\ \url{https://sr.ht/~ralessi/arabluatex} From this page, you can download all the releases of ArabLua\TeX. For instructions on how to install ArabLua\TeX, please see above. \subsection*{Comments, Feature requests, Bug Reports} \label{sec:comm-feat-requ} \url{https://todo.sr.ht/~ralessi/arabluatex} \subsection*{Download the repository} \label{sec:download-repository} ArabLua\TeX\ development is facilitated by git, a distributed version control system. You will need to install git (most Unix/Linux distributions package it in their repositories). Use this command to download the repository \begin{verbatim} git clone https://git.sr.ht/~ralessi/arabluatex \end{verbatim} A new directory named arabluatex will have been created, containing ArabLuaTeX. \subsection*{Git hosting} \label{sec:git-hosting} Make an account on \url{https://sr.ht} and navigate (while logged in) to \url{https://git.sr.ht/~ralessi/arabluatex}. Click \emph{Clone repo to your account} and you will have in your account your own repository of \verb|arabluatex| where you will be able to make whatever changes you like to. \end{document}
