Source code

I was wondering whether we could incorporate a pre-processor and use something like ChemML or MathML. --Phil 08:10, 8 Sep 2004 (CDT)

Fantastic idea; such a MathML→TeX seems to exist (source):
“Of course, the conversion from MathML to TeX can be done today by reading MathML into Mathematica and then saving the result back out as TeX, or using Scientific WorkPlace for suitable LaTeX sources.”
ChemML still seems a little fresh; we might have to do that one ourselves. Danenberg 08:29, 8 Sep 2004 (CDT)

How is this related to Wikipedia and/or Mediawiki?

How is Wikisophia related to Wikipedia and or Mediawiki? I understand that most of the users here (including myself) are Wikipedians. Lee Svoboda 09:20, 24 Feb 2005 (CST)

WikiTeX is developed under the auspices of MediaWiki (here's our CVS and my developer profile); it's a matter now of convincing Brion Vibber, et al. that we're ready for the test server and eventually Wikipedia. Until then, Wikisophia fills the void of a testing and development facility.
The more people we have vouching for the usefulness of WikiTeX, the sooner (I believe) we'll see it in action. Danenberg 11:24, 24 Feb 2005 (CST)
yeah! musi for Wikipedia!
Even then, there are policy issues for Wikipedia which would prevent various modules from being used in the main namespace or on WP entirely. The idea is that they dont want WP to be a hangout for people playing chess or go, keeping everything related to articles. -Y 17:16, 21 May 2005 (CDT)

Where do I start?

Surely, the notability requirements would keep people from playing games among the articles, and a more interactive telnet version of chess must be. I just had an article with a recording of "We have an anchor" on it deleted. Of course, since that was for lack of content, I came here, being reminded that I have a language (and a verse that isn't in my hymnal) to learn. I think that means creating it over here and uploading it to en-wiki or using {wikisophia}. I had a "Chess for Dummies" book with telnet addresses for playing it. As for textual analysis of positions in chess, maybe this is an appropriate place to document how to make scaleable shots. I mean, that's the first advantage of TeX. It can hav edges that are sharp at 1200dpi. The first advantage of wiki is that the documents should get better in time, especially with contributions from the software's author.
So, where do I start learning TeX? Specifically, the music macros. I once had a massive 2G download of WinTex, but it was a new release, it came in two parts, and they didn't work together. That would be six days of downloading over this connection, so I'm glad that a remote interface of some kind is.

This is what I was waiting for! Thank you again Danenberg! Now will be much easier to accomplish our Chess project. When, when will be this in Wikipedias? Where, where do I need to vote or sign for this ?:) --Igor 16:23, 21 Apr 2005 (CDT)

Splitting up huge page

Peter, do you mind if I boldly split up the wikitex article? It is rather long at the moment, and I think it would be easier to absorb a chunk at a time. --Phil 10:14, 13 May 2005 (CDT)

Rich Text and Argument Maps


I think WikiTeX is a brilliant idea... and I would be happy to make contributions in my areas of interest.

I would like to define a language for semantically-rich text, including Argument Maps and finer formalizations. This formal structure would be reminescent of XML and could have many ways of being displayed, all of which I think could be encoded in graphviz.

AFAIK, LaTeX is meant for static documents only (DVI, PS, PDF), so I imagine that it doesn't support such dynamic structures. Or does it?

Is the language used to render a WikiTeX object always the same as the one used in the corresponding LaTeX package? If so, does that mean that the first step is for me to create a LaTeX package?

spam in Current events and Help:Contents

Hello Danenberg, I saw You are experiencing the same spam entry problems as other small wiki projects, I would recommend You to delete the pages where spam entries were made and restore a clean version and then eventually protect these pages. greetings, --birdy (:> )=| 08:01, 6 Dec 2005 (CST)

Current events spammed recently. I simply wiped it out but a deeper cleanup and protection would be welcome, unless that page isn't used for what its title means... --OrbiliusMagister 15:57, 14 Jan 2006 (CST)

Porting WikiteX to Moodle

Hi guys, Have you heard about Moodle ? a "CMS" for e-learning or a "Learning Management System". Could Wikitex be porte to Moodle ? and How ? Wikitex is a very interesting and powerful tool. I hope it will soon be ported to Moodle to everyone's benefit

Namespaces and other stuff

I have been trying to find out whether this stuff is feasible: have you had any luck? —Phil 06:19, 15 March 2006 (CST)

Thanks for the message, Phil; the namespace stuff, I understand, is waiting for MediaWiki.  Any word on when that'll be finished?
As far as wrappable text, I have a beta-code→unicode translator written in C which should work for <greek>; Stacia introduced a TIPA→unicode converter which would have to have to be refactored from JavaScript into, say, PHP. —Danenberg 19:00, 15 March 2006 (CST)
