After a long period of inactivity, much of the content of this site had grown out of date or obsolete, and there are now far better resources available elsewhere online. Accordingly, I have removed most of the older material in order to focus on providing a small number of tools, listed below, that I can more easily maintain. I hope you find them useful.

Stata language module for TextWrangler/BBEdit (updated March 2013)
Install to ~/Library/Application Support/TextWrangler/LanguageModules (replacing TextWrangler with BBEdit if you use the latter).
Build scripts for BBEdit and TextWrangler (updated April 2013)
Installation: Unzip and copy the folder to ~/Library/Application Support/TextWrangler/Scripts, replacing “TextWrangler” with “BBEdit” if you use the latter. Keyboard shortcuts can be assigned using the Scripts Palette.
pandoc scripts: These scripts support conversion to docx, beamer and pdf. They can easily be modified to add new formats (such as html, epub, etc.).
LaTeX scripts: There are two LaTeX scripts, one to call pdflatex once and another to call it twice (for cross-references and bibliographic material). Both open the resulting pdf using the default viewer.
TeXShop comes with some pandoc build engines, but they don’t work on my machine; these scripts do.
Installation: Copy the engines to ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines and restart (you will now be able to choose pandoc as a compilation method).
Ben Hulley’s original suite of tools for using Stata from within BBEdit. These scripts don’t work out of the box with recent versions of BBEdit/TextWrangler, but since they can still be modified to work, some might find them useful.
