We construct a complete heterotic string field theory that includes
both the Neveu-Schwarz and Ramond sectors. We give a construction
of general string products, which realizes a cyclic L-infinity structures
and thus provides with a gauge invariant action in the homotopy
algebraic formulation. Through a map of the string fields, we also
give the Wess-Zumino-Witten-like action in the large Hilbert space,
and verify its gauge invariance independently.
