TeX-my-math alternatives and similar packages

Based on the "Math" category

Do you think we are missing an alternative of TeX-my-math or a related project?

Add another 'Math' Package

README

This is an attempt to get convenient math syntax in HaTeX.

The idea is to combine these features:

  • Full access to the math-typesetting power of LaTeX. It should be possible to express any formula that might be found in a typical mathematics or physics journal article. This should also include expression which are not quite well-defined from a programming point of view, but are clear to the intended audience.
  • Idiomatic Haskell syntax. Who wants to bother with unreadable expressions involving either hundreds of double-backslashes or extra syntax overhead in wrapping them explicitly into HaTeX? Ideally, one would write expressions as if only meaning Haskell to calculate them, but get the result back as a full pretty-printing LaTeX math string. And the actual calculated result as well, if possible!

See [EXAMPLES.md](EXAMPLES.md) for how this works in practice, or [ example/Simple.hs ](example/Simple.hs) for how the library can be used for writing mathematical documents. Rendered, that looks like this:
