Introduction

Postby oranto2001 » Wed Nov 09, 2016 10:32 am

Hi Guys,

Good morning and it's a joy having to join this forum.

My company currently uses the Jira confluence as a wiki page and latex plugin to help publish documents with mathematical computations .Please see: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugi ... r/overview

Currently, we are in the process of adopting the Salesforce Knowledgebase,and to help publish mathematical computations, I would like to know if there is a Latex app or plugin out there.

Any pointers and a possible alternative will be much appreciated .

Cheers

Osato

Hi Osato,

welcome to the forum!

I remember your post. I think yesterday it run into the spam filter (because of keywords such as "Salesforce"), sorry for that!
I don't know a Salesforce compatible plugin, because I don't know Salesforce at all. I could help with any more specifically LaTeX related questions though. Feel free to post any LaTeX question you may have.

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your post.

Salesforce is a leading cloud-based CRM system.Please see: https://www.salesforce.com/uk/company/

From what I understand, there might be no Latex to Salesforce plugin.if you don't mind my asking, do you know of any Latex alternative out there?

The key requirement to my Salesforce knowledgebase project requires the ability to publish mathematical computations with either LaTex or an alternative.

Cheers

There are LaTeX plugins for Mediawiki, Dokuwiki, Wordpress, and many more. Perhaps you can use one and customize it for your purpose. I would google for "latex plugin php" or any language instead of php that you are using with Salesforce.

Finally it's just about making an external call to pdfLaTeX, conversion to PNG, and embedding the result. Can be copied from any other existing plugin.
