I’ve started a PR (#583), that exhibits the hacks we currently use at Lumen that adds a few more latex renderer options. It seems like it is similar-ish to the filter hooks used in import. Any thoughts? I’ll look at it further, but some of the script tag stuff seems a little messy and like maybe there’d be a better way to deal with that.
Yes, I think we can definitely streamline the script tag components. I’d also like to diff PB-LaTeX and the current version of WP LaTex. My understanding (@brad, please correct me if I’m wrong) is that PB-LaTeX is a fork of an earlier version that removes support for self-hosted LaTeX instances, but there may be some changes in the current version that are worth incorporating.
yes, v1.8 I believe. I don’t remember exactly what I stripped out but there were a bunch of latex rendering services. In order to get the export routine to work I had to choose one. https://github.com/pressbooks/pressbooks/blob/dev/includes/modules/export/epub/class-pb-epub201.php#L1792
Alright, the current PR is ready for review here.
And here is our plugin’s changes that utilize the hooks to pull in MathJax and Katex here.
Merged! Thanks for your work on this.
Wow awesome! No problem ned.
Do you think you can make your alternative renderers available as a small standalone plugin soon?
Yeah i think i can do that. The MathJax renderer we can do anyway. The other one’s aren’t really setup for public consumption. I’ll see what I can come up with.
@ned, what would you prefer the standalone plugin be named? taking suggestions.
we call our internal plugins
candela-*name-here*. or we could just call it
I’m in favour of pressbooks-mathjax just to avoid confusion between that and @brad’s original pb-latex.
Here’s what I came up with @ned! It’s tested and seems to work as expected on my local instances.
