Latex Enabled Commenting System

Posted on January 25, 2016

A while ago, I created Cucumber, a simple commenting system built on Firebase. I just discovered that simply adding one line of javascript would allow me me render latex code in my comments.

Now you can type latex code in my comments. Try it out!

It’s not perfect. For example, if you want to edit your latex code, you’ll see a bunch of unsolicited javascript… And of course, don’t expect to type a ridiculous amount in it, because that would be a pain to edit. Great for short comments, in my opinion.

Instructions on adding cucumber to your website can be found here.
