A Haskell library for converting LaTeX math to MathML.



texmath is a Haskell library for converting LaTeX math to MathML and OMML (the math format used in Microsoft Office). It is used by pandoc and gitit.

You can try it out online here. (Note that the math it produces will be rendered correctly only if your browser supports MathML. Firefox does; Safari and Chrome do not.)

By default, only the Haskell library is installed. To install a test program, texmath, use the test Cabal flag:

cabal install -ftest

texmath reads a LaTeX formula from stdin and writes a standalone xhtml file to stdout. You can run the test suite thus:

cd tests

Macro definitions may be included before the formula.

The cgi Cabal flag will cause a CGI binary, texmath-cgi, to be produced:

cabal install -fcgi

The file cgi/texmath.html contains an example of how it can be used.
