I’m sure MathJax would be useful, especially for STEM bloggers.
For my part, I’d love to see write.as support reStructuredText and Emacs org-mode, since I have texts in both.
Thanks, that’s great to know! MathJax support is officially on the roadmap now, and once we get that added it’ll be easier to support new ones.
Feel free to vote on what you’d like to see most (this’ll help us prioritize what we add):
- Emacs org-mode
- Other (leave response)
MathJax support is now live! Just go to your blog settings under the Text Rendering section, and enable MathJax.
If you try it, let me know if anything doesn’t work right.
Once I enabled it, how do I write maths? Also codementor.io has a killer feature where if you press
Ctrl-P then it shows the preview of what you wrote and renders and and formula in AN INSTANT.
Once it’s enabled, you can use the TeX / LaTeX syntax, as mentioned here.
I see what’s happened. It works in my blog but when I try to publish as “Anonymous” it doesn’t work.
Is this a bug?
I voted also for “Other”. I was thinking to Extended Markdown for the support of footnotes, tables with classes, custom classes to h2, h3…
Yes, indeed. Extended Markdown would be helpful.
Next to this: AsciiDoc.
But Extended Markdown would do the trick most of the time.
I’m totally agree!
Would be great!
First of all, thank you folks for this awesome product!
I tried testing MathJax configuration, but it does not renders here, despite having turned on MathJax under customisation. I’m not sure that I’m using this properly so please excuse me if it’s a silly mistake on my side. Thanks!
Have you tried turning it on again and saving the changes? It could be something else going on.
Thanks for making all this effort, means a lot!
I think I might have a lead on this - the
static/js/mathjax folder is empty.
I installed writefreely from pre-built binaries available at GitHub. Given that MathJax is now shipped as a git submodule from this release onward, maybe MathJax wasn’t included in the release?
Should we open an issue regarding this?
I also found few other issues with rendering MathJax, and am not sure where to report them (or if they are issues with using Mathjax in Markdown and even need to be dealt by the writefreely team). I’m putting this here, please feel free to instruct me where to report them.
There’s an error in rendering whenever any of the symbols from
$ are nested together or used in the same line.
Here is a sample blog showing a few results.
Edit: Added the correct link to the blog.
I’ve opened the issues. Please find the links below:
Thanks @RJ722! Please feel free to open up any other issues you may find. The above should be taken care of soon.
