Manjaro repositories contain the latest available versions of popular software like the statistic language R, the numerical computational package Scilab, and the scripting language Python and more. Also LaTeX, additional packages for it and software like Lyx or TeXstudio is readily available and can be installed with just few clicks. With LaTeX scientists can create high-quality documents and presentations with included math-formulas, chemical molecules, self-updating cross- and literature references and more without being restrained by a specific style or document type. Lyx encapsulates LaTeX in a friendly GUI for people who don’t have much experience with LaTeX.
Additional modules for R, Python, Perl and others are either available directly through Manjaro’s repositories or can be compiled and installed with programs like pip or the integrated package management of R.
No additional software is required, as all needed build tools are pre installed. Experimental data can be analyzed with LabPlot.
Repositories are extended further by the Arch User Repository (AUR), which contains build scripts to generate packages. Pamac can be used to handle the build process, installing and updating of AUR-packages with an easy-to-use command line interface. Software available in the AUR are for example popular libraries, compilers, tools for bioinformatics like the Vienna RNA package or IDE like R-Studio.
