Easy WP LaTeX

Easy WP LaTeX provides a very easy way to display math and equations in your posts using LaTeX. Lets you customize colors and sizes of your equations.

Easy WP LaTeX provides a very easy way to display equations or mathematical formulas (typed in as TeX or LaTeX code) in your posts. It lets you customize colors and sizes of your equations to match your blog theme.

Most LaTeX/equation plugins I have seen suffer from a few drawbacks.

  1. They require installations of TeX or other packages on your server.
  2. They are fairly inflexible in terms of colors of text and background.
  3. Each time you switch your theme, you have to re-configure your color scheme.
  4. They may not let you choose how to input LaTeX code. ([math]...[/math] or $$...$$) without editing the plugin code.

My plugin aims to be flexible, and easy to install (no geeky code editing etc.). It is now available in your own language using machine translation curtsey of Google and Microsoft.

Pro Version

This release is the freely distributed version of Easy WP LaTeX. It is fully functional. But the Pro Version gives you more features and benefits. For instance, it gives you an option to cache the formula images so that your pages load faster. New features and bug fixes will first appear in the Pro version before being ported to this freely distributed edition. Also available in the Pro version is an option to align the formula image with respect to the text around it.

Alternatives

  1. Latex for WordPess by zhiqiang, on which this plugin is based, has caching and JS based image generation. But it lacks intuitive color matching and theme-dependent settings.
  2. JetPack also lets you insert LaTeX formulas, again color matching is not easy.
