A web-based mini IDE for writing latex equations. Is now open-source! - ShareLaTeX Blog. We’re pleased to announce that ShareLaTeX is now open source, and you can grab the code on Github! ShareLaTeX is a web-based real-time collaborative LaTeX editor, and you can now run your own local version where you can host, edit, share and compile your LaTeX documents. We’re still 100% focused on running the hosted version at but we want to be more flexible in how you can use ShareLaTeX, and give something back to our wonderful community. We’re starting by open-sourcing the core parts of ShareLaTeX, including the editor, the project and document storage systems, and the backend LaTeX compiler that we use. This is only the beginning of our open-source journey though, and we will be open sourcing much more soon. (We still need to review our back-end code and write documentation for the other parts.) Motivation Our main motivation for ShareLaTeX has always been to improve the efficiency of scientists and students around the world.

Contributing. Embedding LaTeX equations into a webpage. Docs. This is a tool to make it easy to embed LaTeX code in your webpages, even if the server-side software -- like your wiki or blog program -- doesn't support it. To get started, put this HTML at the bottom of your webpage: <script type="text/javascript" src=" type="text/javascript"> replaceMath( document.body ); </script> Once you've done that, to create inline math, use standard LaTeX math delimiters -- for example, $ \LaTeX $ or \( \LaTeX \). Likewise, to insert display math, use $$ \LaTeX $$ or \[ \LaTeX \].

That's all! If you can't insert script tags in your page, check out the bookmarklets in the next section, which you can use to compose blog posts and whatnot with the TeX image tags already in them. Should you need to to prevent certain $ signs from triggering LaTeX rendering, replace $ with the equivalent HTML <span>$</span> or &#36;, or put the code inside a <pre> or <code> block if appropriate. Macros Troubleshooting. WriteLaTeX: Write & Share LaTeX Documents Online. LaTeX is a document markup language that is popularly used in academia. Researchers who are writing papers or books of their own on technical topics mostly choose LaTeX to prepare their documents. There are various desktop text editors that help you prepare documents using the LaTeX language.

To share these documents, you must first save them and then send the file to your peers online. You must also make sure that they have a text editor installed that is capable of viewing and, if necessary, editing LaTeX files. In case the file’s recipient does not have LaTeX ready software, it is very difficult for them to view these files. WriteLaTeX is a free to use website that helps its users prepare LaTeX documents online. Features: A user-friendly web serviceLets you create LaTeX documents onlineLets you share documents you createCan export finished work to PDF and ZIPSimilar tools: ScribTex, MonkeyTex and Verbosus. Check out writeLaTeX @ WriteLaTeX. WriteLaTeX is a free service that lets you create, edit and share your scientific ideas easily online using LaTeX, a comprehensive and powerful tool for scientific writing. WriteLaTeX has grown rapidly since its launch in 2011, and today there are tens of thousands of active users who've created hundreds of thousands of projects.

WriteLaTeX was founded by John Hammersley and John Lees-Miller, two mathematicians who worked together on the pioneering Ultra PRT Project and who were inspired by their own experiences in academia to create a better solution for collaborative scientific writing. Why did we create writeLaTeX? To address problems that we experienced ourselves when writing papers collaboratively, and by doing so, make the power of LaTeX accessible to all scientists and technical writers, at all stages of their career.

Most of the world's technological and medical innovations began with a scientific paper. As described in the review of writeLaTeX on
