I want to know if there is a thing just like WIRIS where I make a question or equation on an editor, and then press a "get latex code" button and it provides me with the latex code. There must be something like this out there. I just can't find it. I would like it if WIRIS had this; I like the way WIRIS is set up. If anyone could help me out, that would be great. Thanks in advance
Apart from DragMath there is MathType (not free) which converts WYSIWYG to various flavours of TeX. You might also find this equation editor of interest: http://thornahawk.unitedti.org/equationeditor/equationeditor.php
That editor of thornahawk is an older modified version of http://www.codecogs.com/components/equationeditor/equationeditor.php
that can be used as external editor or can be integrated as plugin. One free "online editor" is also in
Note however that if you use permalinks or images from external sites those links and images may vanish if those sites stop responding (or allow only paid service)
The main problem with latex is still WYSIWYG. I have created some modified versions of math editor plugins and you need to know the syntax for your tex unless you add external images or tex translated on external server. For example code of Mimetex and TexLive is not the same and the accepted code of renderers is not the same.
HTMLArea shows TeX as TeX untill you paste it to moodle. Dragmath and Wiris show maths as Wysiwyg in Dragmath and Wiris but moodle may still show something different.
And all these editors/plugins can render only part of possible AMS and other (La)TeX equations...
You may have to sign up before you can use zoho writer (but this is free).
Once in zoho writer look for the equation editor under 'insert' in the tool bar.
All the best
In Maths for More, the company behind WIRIS products, we are very happy with the success of WIRIS tools integration with Moodle. We plan to improve our editor and release new products for Moodle soon.
When this option could be available? Which way for adopting to the present editor?
