Well gave up trying to run or preview this math editor. Also its using MathJax which is already known to be very slow compared to roll your own or Katex. I guess I'll stick with MathQuill which lets you preview as you type.
TheRealPomax on July 10, MathJax is definitely slower, but KaTeX never got the developer attention it deserves, and so still lags in support of even some basic LaTeX environments that are used fairly frequently in math "Wysiwyg math editor." Generally the order for software is 1 make it work, 2 make it fast, 3 clean it up, so starting with MathJax makes a lot of sense.
My absolute favourite still is https: KaTeX is still being developed https: They support the "align" environment now, which is all I really needed. They don't support linebreaks though.
We would love to switch to KaTeX but the lack of linebreaks, among probably others, is a deal breaker. Working with MathJax is awful.
IshKebab on July 10, I can't read Chinese, but I'll just throw out that Lyx has a Wysiwyg math editor great wysiwyg equation editor.
It's sort-of latex based which makes it easy to input stuff, but you actually see the equation unlike in normal Latex which is pretty unreadable.
I suspect the awful loading time on both the demo and the repo is this code is sitting in mainland China. I haven't even been able to see the demo There is no license included and non of the dependencies are included in the package.
Still trying to get it to run just to see if there is anything of interest here. So, China has its own github, probably due to the GFW and due to better l10n. How popular is coding. Github is not blocked by the GFW. I've never heard of coding. It has been blocked by the GFW a few times.
I guess having it go down like that unpredictably would push people towards coding. But the l10n is probably a much bigger factor for why anyone would use Wysiwyg math editor. It's more than that.
We will be rolling out the English version of our site in this year, so stay tuned: So do you comply with Chinese censorship better than github does?
It was very difficult to guess how to use this. Consider adding a translation to English of the essential parts.
I speak Spanish natively, but English will get you more world coverage. After some tries, I reach this steps to get a formula: I generally just use . And if you click on the image and copy the address, you can send the very long link to a Wysiwyg math editor and share the equations too.
Looks interesting, but a better loading indicator might be good. I opened this page, and got confused, until I looked at my browser's tab bar, and noticed it was still loading. I living in China.
So,Two point want to say. I also can't understand, why this stuff has Favorite in HN Twitter accounts. A bit surprised to see a Chinese project on coding. That said I am constantly stuck in a state where I cannot backspace to delete what I wrote. Hmm the live example wasn't working for me: This is comical compared to mathquill.
