Lollipop is “TeX made easy” — it is a macro package that functions as a toolbox for writing TeX macros. Its main aim is to make macro writing so easy that implementing a fully new layout in TeX would become a matter of less than an hour for an average document. The aim is that such a task could be accomplished by someone with only a very basic training in TeX programming.
Thus, Lollipop aims to make structured text formatting available in environments where typical users would switch to WYSIWYG packages for the freedom that such a mechanism offers.
In addition, development of support for Lollipop documents written in RTL languages (such as Persian) is underway.
