I don't know whether this kind of thing fits in the
scope of your proposed resource, but there are tool specific
LaTeX resources which go with various proof tools, so if
you want to do things formally and use a computer to "help"
with checking specifications and constructing and checking
proofs then you may well find that it will also help you
with producing LaTeX documents as well.

I can't say which other tools do this kind of thing,
but the tool which I use most is ProofPower, and this
does support the use of LaTeX documents containing formal
mathematics (from a kind-of-wysiwyg source document).

Examples of documents produced in this way can be found


ProofPower, with its document preparation facilities can be
found at the same site.
