Easy LaTeX rendering for Django.

Project description

Latest PyPI version Build Status - master branch coveralls quality Python 2 support Python 3 support maintain website Software license

django-latexify let’s you easily render text and math equations from your template to look like LaTeX. The app lets you render math equations written in LaTeX on your HTML, or even just regular plain text.

It uses Katex (a fast, easy-to-use JavaScript library for TeX math rendering on the web) for rending math equations and a modification of WiTex (LaTeX like CSS) for rending plain text.


python install

Quick start

  1. Add “latexify” to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this:

  2. In your template, load latexify by including:

    {% load latexify %}
  3. In the HTML header of your template, include:

    {% include 'latexify/stylesheets.html' %}
  4. In the bottom of your HTML body, include the following to load the JS associated with latexify:

    {% include "latexify/scripts.html" %}
  5. Latexify your text by including the template tag, for example

    {% latexify context_arg %}
    {% latexify context_arg parse_math=True %}
    {% latexify 'c = \pm\sqrt{a^2 + b^2}' math_inline=True %}
    {% latexify 'c = \pm\sqrt{a^2 + b^2}' math_block=True %}

Which will give you the following:


  1. In your HTML, be sure to include this before the <html> tag.

    <!DOCTYPE html>


  1. Fork it!

  2. Create your feature branch: git checkout -b my-new-feature

  3. Commit your changes: git commit -am ‘Add some feature’

  4. Push to the branch: git push origin my-new-feature

  5. Submit a pull request :D
