Using MathLive

Editing Math

To add a mathfield element in your page use a <math-field> tag. It works just like a <textarea> or <button>. You can manipulate the mathfield using methods of the element and listen for events to be notified when its internal state changes.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en-US">
        <script src=""></script>

Displaying Static Math

Render static math equations by adding two lines to your web page.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en-US">
        <h1>Euler's Identity</h1>
        <p>$$e^{i\pi} + 1 = 0$$</p>

        <script type="module">
            import { renderMathInDocument } from '';
