upgrades and tweaks

January 22, 2010

I’ve made some backend upgrades and some tweaks to the interface. The most important thing to note is that we are now less forgiving about typesetting paragraph text in math mode and math in paragraph mode.Make sure you have the right “format as” setting! (This is the drop-down menu next to the “make mathURL” button.)

If you have a single equation, the default “format as:” setting of “equation” is appropriate, but if you’re typesetting multiple equations mixed with text, you’ll want to change that to “paragraph”.

    Very nice work! Would it be possible to also allow latex to be sent as a parameter? For instance;
    “http://mathurl.com/p/\sum_{i=0}^\infty x_i”,
    and have the output of the image http://mathurl.com/yh3bx3q.png?

      Unfortunately, this falls outside of the scope of mathURL — this site is really intended for interactive human use. However, there’s quite a few alternatives here, which can already do what you want:
