My ~/.latexmkrc file is below. It appears I have extra functions for
making glossaries and working with PythonTeX. There is plenty of support
for latexmk on TeX.SE

Since I turn on preview_continuous_mode in my ~/.latexmkrc, I need to
explicitly turn it off if I am calling latexmk from Org, hence the
"-pvc-" option here:

(setq org-latex-pdf-process (list "/usr/texbin/latexmk -f -gg -pvc- %f"))

But as I said, I find I prefer to bring up a terminal in the directory
where I am working, and dedicate it to running 'latexmk' in continuous
monitoring mode. When I want to clean up a project I'll run "latexmk -c
file.tex" to discard all of the temporary files. I have Skim.app or
Preview.app (OS X PDF viewers) open the PDF file. I edit Org files,
export to LaTeX (C-c C-e l l), and then keep working while the PDF
