What is Mathpix Markdown?

mathpix-markdown is a superset of Markdown that adds helpful syntax for the STEM community, such as advanced equation, table, and chemistry support. Wherever possible, we borrow syntax from LaTeX. In other cases (such as chemistry) we invent new syntax that is backward compatible with Markdown.

Here are the key benefits over plain Markdown:

  • better equation support via LaTeX syntax (powered by MathJax), including equation numbering and referencing conventions from LaTeX
  • better support for tables, via the LaTeX tabular syntax, which allows for complex, nested tables often seen in scientific publications
  • advanced figure referencing via LaTeX syntax
  • support for abstracts, author lists, and linkable sections; these are a fact of life for academic publications
  • support for chemistry diagrams represented with SMILES markup, compatible with popular chemistry tools like Chemdraw

How to edit mmd files?

Mathpix Markdown is an open format with multiple implementations:

  • you can use this Github repo and the mathpix-markdown-it npm library to render STEM content on your website
  • you can use the VS Code plugin (see picture above) to edit mmd files
  • use can use our web editor Snip Notes to edit, export, and publish mmd files (with exports to pdf and docx formats)
  • you can use our experimental static site generator Spectra to edit local mmd files and see changes in real time

How is Mathpix Markdown different from regular Markdown?

Mathpix Markdown addresses these limitations by adding support for the following standard Latex syntax elements which are already familiar to the scientific community:

  • inline math via \( <latex math> \)
  • block math via \[ <latex math> \] or $$ <math> $$
  • tables via \begin{tabular} ... \end{tabular}
  • figures and figure captions via \begin{figure} \caption{...} ... \end{figure}
  • lists: unordered lists via \begin{itemize} ... \end{itemize} and ordered lists via \begin{enumerate} ... \end{enumerate}
  • numbered and unnumbered equation enviornments \begin{elem} ... \end{elem} and \begin{elem*} ... \end{elem*} where elem=equation|align|split|gather
  • equation, table, and figure references via \label, \ref, \eqref, \tag
  • text formatting options \title{...}, \author{...}, \begin{abstract}...\end{abstract}, \section{Section Title}, \subsection{Section Title}, \subsubsection{Section Title}, \textit{italicized text}, \textbf{bold text}, \url{link}
  • chemistry equation via <smiles>OC(=O)c1cc(Cl)cs1</smiles> or
```smiles
OC(=O)c1cc(Cl)cs1
```

What is mathpix-markdown-it?

mathpix-markdown-it is an open source implementation of the mathpix-markdown spec written in Typescript.

It relies on the following open source libraries:

  • MathJax v3 (to render math with SVGs)
  • markdown-it (for standard Markdown parsing)

Quickstart

Installation

npm usage:

$ npm install mathpix-markdown-it

How to use

React usage

mathpix-markdown-it components usage

We provide React components which make rendering of mathpix-markdown-it easy for React applications: Full example

import {MathpixMarkdown, MathpixLoader} from 'mathpix-markdown-it';


class App extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <MathpixLoader>
          <MathpixMarkdown text="\\(ax^2 + bx + c = 0\\)"/>
          <MathpixMarkdown text="$x = \frac { - b \pm \sqrt { b ^ { 2 } - 4 a c } } { 2 a }$"/>
          ...
      </MathpixLoader>
    );
  }
}

MathpixMarkdownModel methods usage

Example of render() method usage

import * as React from 'react';
import { MathpixMarkdownModel as MM } from 'mathpix-markdown-it';

class App extends React.Component {
  componentDidMount() {
    const elStyle = document.getElementById('Mathpix-styles');
    if (!elStyle) {
      const style = document.createElement("style");
      style.setAttribute("id", "Mathpix-styles");
      style.innerHTML = MM.getMathpixFontsStyle() + MM.getMathpixStyle(true);
      document.head.appendChild(style);
    }
  }
  render() {
    const html = MM.render('$x = \\frac { - b \\pm \\sqrt { b ^ { 2 } - 4 a c } } { 2 a }$');
    return (
      <div className="App">
        <div className="content" dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{__html: html}}></div>
      </div>
    )
  }
}

export default App;

Example of markdownToHTML() method usage

class ConvertForm extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    this.state = {
      value: '\\[\n' +
        'y = \\frac { \\sum _ { i } w _ { i } y _ { i } } { \\sum _ { i } w _ { i } } , i = 1,2 \\ldots k\n' +
        '\\]',
      result: ''
    };

    this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this);
    this.handleSubmit = this.handleSubmit.bind(this);
  }

  handleChange(event) {
    this.setState({value: event.target.value});
  }

  handleSubmit(event) {
    event.preventDefault();
    this.setState({result: MM.markdownToHTML(this.state.value)})
  }

  render() {
    return (
      <div>
        <form onSubmit={this.handleSubmit}>
          <h1>Input Text with Latex:</h1>
          <textarea value={this.state.value} onChange={this.handleChange} />
          <input type="submit" value="Convert" />
        </form>
        <div id='preview-content' dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{__html: this.state.result}}/>
      </div>
    );
  }
}

Latex to mathml/asciimath/tsv conversion

Example of Latex to mathml/asciimath/tsv conversion

Rendering methods have the ability to convert Latex representation to such formats as: mathml, asciimath, tsv

const options = {
      outMath: { //You can set which formats should be included into html result
        include_mathml: true,
        include_asciimath: true,
        include_latex: true,
        include_svg: true, // sets in default
        include_tsv: true,
        include_table_html: true, // sets in default
      }
    };
const html = MathpixMarkdownModel.markdownToHTML(`$x^x$`, options);

markdownToHTML() returns an HTML string that will contain the formats specified in the options.

For Latex formulas, the result will be:

<span class="math-inline">
    <mathml style="display: none">...</mathml>
    <asciimath style="display: none">...</asciimath>
    <latex style="display: none">...</latex>
    <mjx-comtainer class="MathJax" jax="SVG">..</mjx-comtainer>
</span>

For tabular, the result will be:

<div class="table_ tabular">
    <table id="tabular">...</table>
    <tsv style="display: none">...</tsv>
</div>

Then calling the parseMarkdownByHTML(html) method will return all formats as a list from the incoming html string.

For Latex formulas:

[
    {
      "type": "mathml",
      "value": "<math>...</math>"
    },
    {
       "type": "asciimath",
       "value": "x^(x)"
     },
    {
       "type": "latex",
       "value": "x^x"
     },
    {
       "type": "svg",
       "value": "<sgv>...</svg>"
     }
]

For tabular:

[
    {
      "type": "html",
      "value": "<table>...</table>"
    },
    {
       "type": "tsv",
       "value": "<tsv>...</tsv>"
     }
]

Example of outMath option usage

For Latex formulas:

const options = {
      outMath: {
        include_mathml: false,
        include_asciimath: true,
        include_latex: false,
      }
    };
const latex = `$x^x$`;
const html = MathpixMarkdownModel.markdownToHTML(latex, options);
const parsed = MathpixMarkdownModel.parseMarkdownByHTML(html, false);

html:

<div>
    <span class="math-inline">
        <asciimath style="display: none;">x^(x)</asciimath>
        <mjx-comtainer class="MathJax" jax="SVG"><svg>...</svg></mjx-comtainer>
    </span>
</div>

parsed:

[
    {
       "type": "asciimath",
       "value": "x^(x)"
     },
    {
       "type": "svg",
       "value": "<sgv>...</svg>"
     }
]

For tabular:

const options = {
      outMath: {
        include_table_html: false,
        include_tsv: true,
      }
    };
const latex = `\\begin{tabular}{ l c r }
  1 & 2 & 3 \\\\
  4 & 5 & 6 \\\\
  7 & 8 & 9 \\\\
\\end{tabular}`;
const html = MathpixMarkdownModel.markdownToHTML(latex, options);
const parsed = MathpixMarkdownModel.parseMarkdownByHTML(html, false);
<div class="table_tabular " style="text-align: center">
  <tsv style="display: none">1    2       3
4       5       6
7       8       9</tsv>
</div>

parsed:

[
  { 
    type: 'tsv', 
    value: '1\t2\t3\n4\t5\t6\n7\t8\t9' 
  }
]

Example of the include_sub_math option usage for tables containing nested tables and formulas

parseMarkdownByHTML(html: string, include_sub_math: boolean = true)

By default, the include_sub_math option is enabled, and as a result will contain formats for the nested table and math.
const options = {
    outMath: {
        include_asciimath: true,
        include_mathml: true,
        include_latex: true,
        include_svg: true,
        include_tsv: true,
        include_table_html: true
    }
  };
const latex = `\\begin{tabular}{ l c r }
                 1 & {$x^1$} & 3 \\\\
                 4 & {$y^1$} & 6 \\\\
                 7 & {$z^1$} & 9 \\\\
               \\end{tabular}`;
const html = MathpixMarkdownModel.markdownToHTML(latex, options);
const parsed = MathpixMarkdownModel.parseMarkdownByHTML(html);

parsed:

[
  { 
    type: 'html',
    value: '<table>..</table>'
  },
  { type: 'tsv', value: '1\tx^(1)\t3\n4\ty^(1)\t6\n7\tz^(1)\t9' },
  
  { type: 'mathml', value: '<math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML">\n  <msup>\n    <mi>x</mi>\n    <mn>1</mn>\n  </msup>\n</math>' },
  { type: 'asciimath', value: 'x^(1)' },
  { type: 'latex', value: 'x^1' },
  { type: 'svg', value: '<svg >..</svg>' },
    
  { type: 'mathml', value: '<math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML">\n  <msup>\n    <mi>y</mi>\n    <mn>1</mn>\n  </msup>\n</math>' },
  { type: 'asciimath', value: 'y^(1)' },
  { type: 'latex', value: 'y^1' },
  { type: 'svg', value: '<svg ></svg>' },
      
  { type: 'mathml', value: '<math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML">\n  <msup>\n    <mi>z</mi>\n    <mn>1</mn>\n  </msup>\n</math>' },
  { type: 'asciimath', value: 'z^(1)' },
  { type: 'latex', value: 'z^1' },
  { type: 'svg', value: '<svg ></svg>' }
]
If you set the include_sub_math option in the false, then as a result, will not contain formats for all the nested table and math.
const options = {
    outMath: {
        include_asciimath: true,
        include_mathml: true,
        include_latex: true,
        include_svg: true,
        include_tsv: true,
        include_table_html: true
    }
  };
const latex = `\\begin{tabular}{ l c r }
                 1 & {$x^1$} & 3 \\\\
                 4 & {$y^1$} & 6 \\\\
                 7 & {$z^1$} & 9 \\\\
               \\end{tabular}`;
const html = MathpixMarkdownModel.markdownToHTML(latex, options);
const parsed = MathpixMarkdownModel.parseMarkdownByHTML(html, false);

parsed:

[
  { 
    type: 'thml',
    value: '<table>..</table>'
  },
  { 
    type: 'tsv', 
    value: '1\tx^(1)\t3\n4\ty^(1)\t6\n7\tz^(1)\t9' 
  }
]

Using mathpix-markdown-it in web browsers

If you are loading mathpix-markdown-it from a CDN into a web page, there is no need to install anything. Simply use a script tag that loads mathpix-markdown-it from the CDN. E.g.,

  <script>
    let script = document.createElement('script');
    script.src = "https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/mathpix-markdown-it@1.0.40/es5/bundle.js";
    document.head.append(script);

    script.onload = function() {
      const isLoaded = window.loadMathJax();
      if (isLoaded) {
        console.log('Styles loaded!')
      }
    }
  </script>

Example of mathpix-markdown-it usage in the web browsers

Accessibility math

By default, math is not accessibility. In order for math to become accessibility, need to load the library speech-rule-engine for semantic interpretation.

1. For Browser libraries, synchronous loading is used.

import { MathpixMarkdownModel } from "mathpix-markdown-it";
import { loadSre } from "mathpix-markdown-it/lib/sre/sre-browser";

const html = MathpixMarkdownModel.markdownToHTML("$x^y$", {
    accessibility: {
      sre: loadSre()
    },
});

2. For Node modules, asynchronous loading is used.

const { MathpixMarkdownModel } = require('mathpix-markdown-it');
const { loadSreAsync } = require('mathpix-markdown-it/lib/sre/sre-node');

(async() => {
  const html = MathpixMarkdownModel.markdownToHTML("$x^y$", {
    accessibility: {
      sre: await loadSreAsync()
    },
  });
})

If the accessibility option is specified, then assistive-mml into mjx-container will be added for math

    </mjx-container>
  </span>
</div>

The math will then be read by screen readers as x Superscript y

Context menu for export math

The context menu for selecting math export options is only available for browser libraries

In the rendering options, specify the export formats that should be displayed in the menu:

const html = MM.markdownToHTML("$x^y$", {
outMath: {
    include_error: true,
    // Show in context menu:
    include_asciimath: true,
    include_latex: true,
    include_mathml: true,
    include_mathml_word: true,
  }
});

Then we can use:

import {
  addListenerContextMenuEvents,
  removeListenerContextMenuEvents,
} from "mathpix-markdown-it/lib/contex-menu";

addListenerContextMenuEvents - listens for events to invoke and create the context menu removeListenerContextMenuEvents - stop listening to these events

sre object null spe object from library speech-rule-engine for semantic interpretation.
If this value is not set then the aria-label for accessibility will not be added to the math at render time.

sre Has different loaders for node and browser.

  1. For Browser libraries, synchronous loading is used.
import { loadSre } from "mathpix-markdown-it/lib/sre/sre-browser";
const sre = loadSre();
  1. For Node modules, asynchronous loading is used.
const { loadSreAsync } = require('mathpix-markdown-it/lib/sre/sre-node');

(async() => {
  const sre = await loadSreAsync();
})

Then just pass the resulting value to accessibility.spe

accessibility: {
     assistiveMml: true, // assistive-mml will be added to mjx-container
     sre: sre
   }

Adding accessibility to math on already rendered html.

addAriaToMathHTML(sre, html) function will add accessibility attributes. Can only be used for Browser libraries

import { loadSre } from "mathpix-markdown-it/lib/sre/sre-browser";
const sre = loadSre();

const htmlAssistive = addAriaToMathHTML(sre, html);
