News announces online LaTeX editor with PDF creation and preview functionality

November 12, 2009

Advertisement has announced that it offers a free, online solution for managing LaTeX projects. Among other things, the service allows users to preview and create PDF documents from within a web browser.

According to the official press release:

It uses several different technologies like HTML, JavaScript and Ajax to fit the look and feel to applications everybody knows. It is not needed to download or install any software (except a pdf-viewer which is installed on most machines) since the browser takes care for displaying the generated pdf.

The generation of the pdf takes place "behind the scenes" on a special server which executes all LaTeX commands. Due to dynamic pattern recognition the server knows when to re-run certain commands and can, as a result, assure that the generated pdf is created and displayed correctly (some latex editors require to run several commands more than once).
