This is a zope product/zwiki plugin which allows you to use include Latex markup in your zwiki pages. It was originally coded by Joe Koberg and R. Sean Bowman, then maintained and developed for a few years by BobMcElrath. It was extended by Bill Page for MathAction. Simon Michael pared it down and added it to Zwiki 0.56 as the latexwiki plugin, and this is the version documented below. BrunoVernier and AlistairBurt? also did early experiments with Zwiki/Latex integration.

## How to enable Latex support in Zwiki

Zwiki does not configure a Latex wiki for you as the older product does; you must do some manual setup. From memory, it goes something like this:

1. See http://zwiki.org/repos/ZWiki/plugins/latexwiki/README.txt for additional docs and dependencies. Install these.
2. Create a directory named LatexWiki in INSTANCE_HOME/var on the filesystem. Make sure it is writable by Zope .
3. Create an images LocalFS object in your wiki folder in the ZODB, pointing to the above.
4. create a wiki page with type "Structured Text + LaTeX", and try some of the examples below. Latex is not supported Restructured Text pages at the moment. It is supported in page names and bracket links as well as body text.
5. note the security discussion on OldLatexWikiDiscussion

To use math mode in-line with text, surround the equation with \$, like this !$x^2$to make:$ x^2 $, or !$$x^2$$ or use !\begin{math} ... \end{math}. To make a block equation use !\begin{equation} ... \end{equation} like this: \begin{equation} \int{x^2 + y_3}{dx} \end{equation} Another: \begin{equation} d^2 = \left| \vec{x}_1 - \vec{x}_0 - \frac{(\vec{x}_2 - \vec{x}_1)\left[(\vec{x}_1 - \vec{x}_0)\cdot(\vec{x}_2 - \vec{x}_1)\right]?}{\left|\vec{x}_2 - \vec{x}_1\right|^2} \right|^2 . \end{equation} To make a block equation that is not numbered, surround the equation with \$\$, like this !$$x^2$$, or !$...$? or use:  !\begin{equation*} ... \end{equation*}  like this: \begin{equation} x^2 \end{equation} Basic constructs: \begin{tabular}{@{}l@{\hspace{1em}}l@{\hspace{2em}}l@{\hspace{1em}}l@{}} \verb!^{x}! & Superscript$^{x}$& \verb!_{x}! & Subscript$_{x}$\\ \verb!\frac{x}{y}! &$\frac{x}{y}$& \verb!\sum_{k=1}^n! &$\sum_{k=1}^n$\\ \verb!\sqrt[n]?{x}! &$\sqrt[n]?{x}$& \\ \end{tabular} Math-mode symbols (this is a subset): \begin{tabular}{@{}l@{\hspace{1em}}l@{\hspace{2em}}l@{\hspace{1em}}l@{\hspace{2em}}l@{\hspace{1em}}l@{}}$\leq$& \verb!\leq! &$\geq$& \verb!\geq! &$\neq$& \verb!\neq! \\$\cdot$& \verb!\cdot! &$\times$& \verb!\times! &$\div$& \verb!\div! \\$\ast$& \verb!\ast! &$\circ$& \verb!\circ! &$\cdots$& \verb!\cdots! \\$\alpha$& \verb!\alpha! &$\beta$& \verb!\beta! &$\gamma$& \verb!\gamma! \\$\delta$& \verb!\delta! &$\epsilon$& \verb!\epsilon! &$\varepsilon$& \verb!\varepsilon! \\$\zeta$& \verb!\zeta! &$\eta$& \verb!\eta! &$\theta$& \verb!\theta! \\$\vartheta$& \verb!\vartheta! &$\iota$& \verb!\iota! &$\kappa$& \verb!\kappa! \\$\lambda$& \verb!\lambda! &$\mu$& \verb!\mu! &$\nu$& \verb!\nu! \\$\xi$& \verb!\xi! &$\pi$& \verb!\pi! &$\rho$& \verb!\rho! \\$\sigma$& \verb!\sigma! &$\tau$& \verb!\tau! &$\upsilon$& \verb!\upsilon! \\$\phi$& \verb!\phi! &$\chi$& \verb!\chi! &$\psi$& \verb!\psi! \\$\omega$& \verb!\omega! &$\Gamma$& \verb!\Gamma! &$\Delta$& \verb!\Delta! \\$\Theta$& \verb!\Theta! &$\Lambda$& \verb!\Lambda! &$\Xi$& \verb!\Xi! \\$\Pi$& \verb!\Pi! &$\Sigma$& \verb!\Sigma! &$\Upsilon$& \verb!\Upsilon! \\$\Phi$& \verb!\Phi! &$\Psi$& \verb!\Psi! &$\Omega\$ & \verb!\Omega! \\ \end{tabular}
