Active development of JAMWiki has ceased, and bug fixes and support will be limited at best. If you are interested in taking over management of JAMWiki please send an email to the jamwiki-devel mailing list.

Tech:Integrate jsMath

ktip.png This page (and all pages in the Tech: namespace) is a developer discussion about a feature that is either proposed for inclusion in JAMWiki or one that has already been implemented. This page is NOT documentation of JAMWiki functionality - for a list of documentation, see Category:JAMWiki.
Status of this feature: NOT IMPLEMENTED. These steps can be followed by anyone wishing to integrate jsMath into their own implementation, but this functionality is not included in the default JAMWiki distribution.

A mini guide for integrating jsMath into JAMWiki.

<DIV CLASS="math">sin(x)</DIV>

All DIV formulas that have the class math are then rendered by jsMath.

Store the jsMath files and fonts in the directory:


Modify the file:

 <script src="../static/jsMath/jsMath.js"></script>
 <style type="text/css">#jsMath_Warning {display: none} </style>

Modify the file:

 <SCRIPT> jsMath.Process() </SCRIPT>
