MathJAX plugin for GitBook
Clone or download

Math integration with GitBook

This plugin uses MathJax to display Math/TeX formula. This is an official plugin. Versions >=0.1.0 require GitBook >=2.0.0.

How to use it?

Add it to your book.json configuration:

    "plugins": ["mathjax"]

Install your plugins using:

$ gitbook install ./

You can now add TeX formula to your book using the {% math %} block:

When {% math %}a \ne 0{% endmath %}, there are two solutions to {% math %}(ax^2 + bx + c = 0){% endmath %} and they are {% math %}x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.{% endmath %}

You can also use the shortcut $$:

When $$a \ne 0$$, there are two solutions to $$(ax^2 + bx + c = 0)$$ and they are $$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.$$


You can force the use of svg pre-processed by adding to your book.json:

    "pluginsConfig": {
            "forceSVG": true
