****************************************************************************** * Lequation ****************************************************************************** Features: - Latex equation editor - Contains latex distribution (texlive 2011) - emphasis on simplicity - currently two stand alone versions: win and osx - currently one office ribbon integrated version: win-ribbon (alpha) ****************************************************************************** Stand alone installation: - unzip and run lequation (.exe or .app) - use 7-zip to unzip if standard windows unzip fails Stand alone usage: - Write to memo and click apply - program generates image from latex commands - image is copied to clipboard automatically - paste the image where its needed ****************************************************************************** Ribbon installation: - install python27 to c:\python27 - note! The location must be such that you can write there without elevated priviledges (admin) - install pywin (windows COM bindings etc for python) - install numpy (numerical python) - install PIL (python image library) - unzip lequation with 7-zip - run registerLequation.py AS ADMIN Ribbon usage: - in word or power point, there is a lequation toolbar in addins - in MS Word: - paint (select) latex commands in document - click lequation button - selected text is replaced by an equation image - note! the text must be selected in document base (not e.g. some menu text field) - in MS PowerPoint - paint (select) latex commands in text box - click lequation button - equation image is added to slide - latex command is seen as an "alt text" in image - second click image -> format image -> alt text - note! the text must be selected from text box in slide edit mode (not e.g. alt text box in menu) ****************************************************************************** Sources - src/commandLine folder - latexCompiler.py: - usage: python latexCompiler.py <latexString> - if you have white spaces in your <latexString> encapsulate it with "" - example: python latexCompiler.py "\frac{ \alpha }{\beta \gamma}" - lequation.conf: - main configuration file - note! in Distributions the programs will be in "bin" directory. In sources, programs are in "src/<programName>" directory. The path to "texlive" directory is relative. So, change "../../" to "../" in commands in lequation.conf when distributing. - src/ribbon folder - ribbon control files - this is in alpha stage and constantly living - Target is: - vba-scripts for office add-in buttons (ppam, docm) - XYZ-scripts for open office add-in buttons - commandLine program as backend - src/standAlone folder - this will go through major revisions - separate frontend from backend - frontend can be native **************************************************************************** Source usage: - unzip zips/texlive.zip <installDir> - cd <installDir>/src/standAlone - python lequation.py **************************************************************************** Future plans: - add tex-to-img and img-to-tex buttons - add history - add pdf, svg, mathml, eps, ps, jpg, gif and dvi output support - minimize admin installation need (to only when registering office-addin) - tweak stand alone GUI (especially in osx) - write plugins for osx-office and open office - use system latex if available
