At the moment, I'm using mimetex
to automatically convert a bunch of equations into gif-images.
The program is fast, but the images look pretty bad:
How can I (quickly) convert a LaTeX equation into an SVG image on the command line?

pdf2svg works quite well.
Use \pagestyle{empty}
to avoid page numbers and pdfcrop
(package texlive-extra-utils
) to remove empty space around the equations
A new option is to use mathjax-node
from npm
. Install a distribution of node, then use npm
to install mathjax-node
:
$ npm install --global mathjax-node
Edit: You now have to install mathjax-node-cli, however, mathjax-node-cli doesn't show up (yet), so I had to pass the github repo:
$ npm install --global https://github.com/mathjax/mathjax-node-cli.git
Once installed, you will be able to use tex2svg
:
$ /usr/local/lib/node_modules/mathjax-node-cli/bin/tex2svg \
'\sin^2{\theta} + \cos^2{\theta} = 1' > identity.svg
And the result:
The generated SVG file renders properly inside a browser but cannot be displayed using standard image tools.
Have you tried ekee? It's a clone of LatexIt for Mac, it's great! It's hosted on http://rlehy.free.fr/.
