  • How do I do this?
    4 projects | /r/webdev | 20 Apr 2023
    If you want to make it from scratch, go with https://www.slatejs.org/examples/richtext, then use something like https://katex.org/ for rendering the LaTeX, and maybe Mathjs.org for plotting.
  • The fastest math typesetting library for the web

    The speed of KaTeX is great, but the lack of support for diagrams (a la tikz-cd) is what makes KaTeX unsuitable for general adoption by mathematicians (e.g., mathoverflow.net and all online mathematical wiki I know use MathJax). KaTeX has some rudimentary support for diagrams though the {CD} environment, but something more fully fledged akin to tizk-cd or xymatrix is needed. There's been some discussion on their github (https://github.com/KaTeX/KaTeX/issues/219), but I wouldn't hold my breath.

  • Is it possible to add LaTeX commands to a markdown file?
    5 projects | /r/Markdown | 6 Jan 2023
    When exporting, you can choose to export and have KeenWrite replace TeX with SVG, or if you have a website that uses KaTeX or MathJax, you can export while leaving the TeX statements alone.

  • State of handwriting recognition in LaTeX, need advice
    2 projects | /r/LaTeX | 12 Oct 2022
    ah, yeah I've heard good things about pandoc and I didn't know latexmk was I thing, I'll probably check that out. Most implementations that use latex for chat or forums or w/e don't support latex (Like Reddit's markdown mode) Also website builders that let you write markdown instead of HTML (Ghost typically don't support it Although I think it would be fairly trivial to compile markdown with katex before running it through the standard markdown parser. If you want a PDF you probably want real latex though
  • I want LaTeX to both render and not render - how?
    2 projects | /r/LaTeX | 10 Sep 2022
    This might be a better question for the subreddit for whatever language or framework you’re using to build your website. And you don’t actually specify how you’re doing that either. But something like this comes to mind for ReactJS: https://github.com/zzish/react-latex which is based on this https://github.com/KaTeX/KaTeX

    I used to think KaTeX was far superior to MathJax but now I'm not so sure. I made https://mk12.github.io/web-math-demo/ to compare them and other things. They're definitely superior to browser MathML rendering today, which is nonexistent in Chrome (though see https://mathml.igalia.com/), quite bad in Safari, and OK in Firefox. It's true pre-rendering KaTeX produces a lot of markup, but it compresses very well so I don't think it's a big deal. They both have MathML for accessibility, but MathJax is more flexible in letting the user right-click and change the rendering engine, view raw TeX, etc. Rendering KaTeX on the client side is faster than MathJax, but in my experience KaTeX is slightly worse quality, e.g. https://github.com/KaTeX/KaTeX/issues/3400 has gone unfixed for a long time.
