Update

# MathJax Plugin

This plugin provides seamless Latex support for WikidPad. Latex equations are beautifully rendered using the MathJax engine.

## Installation

• This plugin requires WikidPad version 2.2beta03 or higher.
• Download a copy of MathJax into a directory of your choice. More detailed information and download links are provided here.
• Switch to a Javascript-capable HTML renderer in Options -> HTML preview/export. The WebKit preview renderer is recommended (and the plugin hasn't been tested with anything else).
• Extract the plugin files (attached below) into the user_extensions subdirectory of your WikidPad directory (create this folder if it does not already exist). Make sure that the folder structure is preserved when extracting the archive (i.e. that the files MathJaxParser.py and __init__.py are in a Parser subdirectory of user_extensions).
• After restarting WikidPad, the WikidPad Options dialog should now have a MathJax entry under Plugin options. Go to this page and enter the full path of your MathJax directory.

## How to use

Latex rendering in the previewer is enabled by turning on the plugin (Enable MathJax) on the Options page.

You can now use Latex directly within wiki pages. A large amount of Latex is supported (for more details see the MathJax webpage). A simple example is given below.



## Changelog

1.0 Initial release

1.1 Change MathJax parser to better avoid conflicts: escape character is now @ instead of |, italic and bold is encoded by __ and **

1.1.22b04 Reflect parser changes in WikidPad 2.2.b04_2

1.1.22b05 Reflect parser changes in WikidPad 2.2.b05_2

1.2 Use OverlayParser for the MathJax parser, which should make it unnecessary to update the plugin every time the WikidPad parser changes.
