    Yes, jsCompress.pl is not included. It is not currently in shape to be distributed. Please see bug 3042991 for a description of how to modify MathJax without having to edit the core MathJax files.

    Davide, what if people want to modify unpacked and minify it? How do you do that?

  • Davide P. Cervone


    As I mentioned to Bala, there are other methods provided by MathJax for modifying MathaJax's underlying code, which are descrined in bug 3042991, which I site below. Quite frankly, I DON'T expect people to modify and repack MathJax code, and so am not in a rush to release jsCompress.pl. Even if I were, it is not currently in shape to be released, so those who want to do that will have to wait. If people need to modify the code in the meantime, they can run the (modified) unpacked code out of the unpacked directory, or can replace any of the packed files (other than MathJax/MathJax.js itself) with a modified unpacked one (and so can use packed versions of everything else but the modified code). They can even use a yuicompressed version to do that if they want, which will get them much of the compression. That will have to do until a version of jsCompress.pl is ready for release.
