Description

Angular module to write beautiful math expressions in TeX syntax boosted by KaTeX library. You can see a demo here.

Install

To install the module you can simply type it on your command line:

npm install ng-katex --save

To add the module to your project add the KatexModule to import's field of your parent module:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';

import { KatexModule } from 'ng-katex';

import { AppComponent } from './app/app.component';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    KatexModule
  ],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})

class AppModule {}

platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);

Important!

If you're using angular-cli, add the katex css import to your styles.css:

@import '~katex/dist/katex.css';

If you're not using the angular-cli, import the stylesheet to your index.html:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/KaTeX/0.11.0/katex.min.css">

Usage

You can write a LaTeX equation as follows:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'my-app',
  template: `<ng-katex [equation]="equation"></ng-katex>`
})
export class AppComponent {
  equation: string = '\\sum_{i=1}^nx_i';
}

Also, you can add options to ng-katex components with:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

import { KatexOptions } from 'ng-katex';

@Component({
  selector: 'my-app',
  template: `<ng-katex [equation]="equation" [options]="options"></ng-katex>`
})
export class AppComponent {
  equation: string = '\\sum_{i=1}^nx_i';
  options: KatexOptions = {
    displayMode: true,
  };
}

The options object structure is defined here.

If you want to write a paragraph with LaTeX equations, you can do it as follows:

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'my-app',
  template: `<ng-katex-paragraph [paragraph]="paragraph"></ng-katex-paragraph>`
})
export class AppComponent {
  paragraph: string = `
    You can write text, that contains expressions like this: $x ^ 2 + 5$ inside them. As you probably know.
    You also can write expressions in display mode as follows: $$\\sum_{i=1}^n(x_i^2 - \\overline{x}^2)$$.
    In first case you will need to use \\$expression\\$ and in the second one \\$\\$expression\\$\\$.
    To scape the \\$ symbol it's mandatory to write as follows: \\\\$
  `;
}

If you want to write HTML with LaTeX equations, you can do it as follows: (Security Note: this bypasses Angular DOM Sanitization)

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'my-app',
  template: `<ng-katex-html [html]="html"></ng-katex-html>`
})
export class AppComponent {
  html: string = `
    <div>You can write html, that contains expressions like this: $x ^ 2 + 5$ inside them. As you probably know. You also can write expressions in display mode as follows: $$\\sum_{i=1}^n(x_i^2 - \\overline{x}^2)$$. In first case you will need to use \\$expression\\$ and in the second one \\$\\$expression\\$\\$. To scape the \\$ symbol it's mandatory to write as follows: \\\\$</div><p>: <button>I'm a button</button></p>
  `;
}
