Support for latex? Like MathJax or Katex. Any plan for this?
Very welcome news. Thanks and good work!
Thanks! Works great!
Great! Going to test it right now!
Nice job folks. Thanks so much for being responsive to this.
We just released math editing ! Let us know if you have any feedback.
Wow! I see it in progress! When will it be released?
I am an engineer and I need to write mathematical equations. If gitbook can support Mathjax, I would be very grateful
Came here specifically to request this. I'm a mathematics professor and can definitely see possibilities for GitBook in my courses -- having mathematics notation support is really essential. MathJax is super simple and would be preferred.
I joined gitbooks because I saw that you were able to use MathJax and got excited only to see that it no longer is supported. I was planning on creating math notes using LaTeX for my sister and having them on gitbook.
I am considering moving some material of university programming course I teach to GitBook but LaTex math expressions are fundamental...
No math is a no go.
Agree. Machine Learning and Deep Learning would be more and more popular, and it needs many math formulas in those kind of books.
@Junqin: That is my use case and show-stopper
Just found gitbook and it looks perfect for my needs, except for the lack of math and citation support. Bringing back KaTeX plugin and bibtex-cite plugin will make this a no-brainer purchase.
I left GitBook for other reasons but I can’t come back without math rendering support (both inline and display).
@Eric: Ah yes. Vote upped.
@Luke Janicke: Haha.. Sorry~~ My mistake.
@Luke Janicke: Similarly, can't migrate to new gitbook from old gitbook.
As a note: mathjax was the only plugin that allowed for appropriate matrices to be rendered in gitbook and is essential (until katex is developed sufficiently to replace it)
Unfortunately, the only way to get mathjax to render without a refresh was by placing an ugly set of commands at the start of every page, and this should be avoided in the future.
bibtex-cite was also a wonderful plugin
@James Schloss: How to load the mathjax plugin in the new gitbook?
@saturn: The new gitbook is doing away with plugins, so far as I am aware, so there is no way to do this currently. That's why we are suggesting it here.
Katex was one of the best plugin of gitbook.
Please port katex for new gitbook version.
