starting today, we can use an online LaTeX compiler in the forum in collaboration with Overleaf, an online collaborative LaTeX editor with integrated rapid preview.
Above Code boxes in forum posts there's a new link: Open in Overleaf. By a single click, you will land in the editor which shows the code on the left side, and the output preview on the right side. Compilation is done in realtime.
Now, if a compilable example was posted, you can edit it and view it by a single click, modify and test it and provide a working answer even without having a local TeX installation.
Just try it with an MWE - click on Open in Overleaf:
Now it's even more beneficial if complete examples were posted. It basically works for small snippets too, adding a basic wrapping, which you can extend, such as here - click on Open:
To learn more about the editor, just click the Help button there.
Enjoy the new feature!
