Figure 3. Gliimpse: A detail of the animation between an article and its LaTeX source code.

Gliimpse is a quick preview technique that smoothly transitions between document markup code (HTML, LaTeX,...) and its visual rendering. This technique allows users to regularly check the code they are editing in-place, without leaving the text editor. This method can complement classical preview windows by offering rapid overviews of code-to-document mappings and leaving more screen real-estate. A proof-of-concept editor can be downloaded for free at http://www.aviz.fr/gliimpse/ .
