Is there a way to integrate Arara as a way to automate the building process of a LaTeX document in Emacs/AUCTex?

Add the appropriate entry to TeX-command-list. Insert the following code in your init file:

(eval-after-load "tex"
  '(add-to-list 'TeX-command-list
        '("Arara" "arara --verbose %s" TeX-run-TeX nil t :help "Run Arara.")))

The --verbose flag has been suggested by Paul Stanley.

    Better ("Arara" "arara --verbose %s" TeX-run-Tex nil t :help "Run Arara.") The --verbose flag allows auctex to parse the output and avoids spurious errors. Commented Jan 20, 2019 at 18:16
  • Once I've added this code to my init file, how do I run it? C-c C-a?

  • C-c C-c Arara RET should work
