lwarp and tikz

Postby janwillem » Tue Jul 24, 2018 1:35 pm

I'm trying to get the grips on lwarp. I have a tikz figure in my document and I cannot get that shown in the html. I get the word "image" instead and """<span id="lateximage1" class="lateximagesource"><!--
--><img src="lateximages/lateximage-1.svg" alt="image" style="" class="lateximage"></span> <br />""" in the html and nothing in lateximages.
Something not understood here but what? please help,
Cheers, janwillem

The source:
%use XeLaTeX


The equation: $ x = \sqrt{2} $ \\ \\

From the command line, enter "lwarpmk limages" to process the LaTeX images, then reload the web page to update the display.

If you remove the mathjax option, thus selecting SVG math images, then "lwarpmk html" followed by "lwarpmk limages" will create SVG images for the math as well. Recent versions use a hash function to reuse inline math where possible, and also process images in parallel.

Recent versions of the lwarpmk utility also can automate the processing of indexes and glossary, and batch convert the user's PDF figures into SVG images.

As of this writing lwarp has support for more than 300 packages. Many are nullified and provided only for source-level compatibility, but a large number of additional packages work as-is.

The next version supports asymptote, and dvi plus postscript may be coming some day as well.

Later versions of lwarp have a nice tutorial, so if you have an older version without the tutorial then it would be worth it to download the latest version from CTAN. Also included are instructions for several ways to install lwarp.
