# Math API: LaTeX Math as SVG image

### Yasuaki Uechi ・1 min read

I've always wanted to put LaTeX Math equations on a web page where MathJax is not allowed to run inside it.

Spending some time, I made Math API, that renders LaTeX Math markup into an SVG image.

So you can place your equation on almost everywhere on which you could put `<img>`

or Markdown (`![]()`

), such as GitHub, Jupyter Notebook or dev.to (here!).

```
![](https://math.now.sh?from=\\LaTeX)
```

```
![](https://math.now.sh?from=\\log\\prod^N_{i}x_{i}=\\sum^N_i\\log{x_i})
```

# Inline image

It is possible to generate an inline equation by changing the query from `from`

to `inline`

.

```
<img src="https://math.now.sh?inline=\\LaTeX" />
```

# Online Editor

Also, there is the online editor available at https://math.now.sh.

# Conclusion

The source code is available on GitHub.

Give it a try and leave a comment/idea for a new feature.

I might use this for some of my future Dev.to posts.

Thanks for making this.
