Binary Strolls

Cyber rambling (or ranting), mostly about code

LaTeX on the go.

October 11, 2011 , posted in latex, tips

This is just another day I thanked web 2.0, this time the story goes like this.

I needed to prepare a LaTeX document on the go, had no laptop with me and I couldnt find one with LaTeX installed, and installing LaTeX with current internet speeds, was the unthinkable.

I tried to settle with a word processor, but the idea hit me that I should search web, a simple search took me to http://duckduckgo.com/?q=online+latex+editors

I selected two links from the top, MonkeyTex has a really simple no frills yet beautiful interface, where ScribeTex offer a feature filled one. They also offer paid plans, other than a free plan which restricts you in number of projects and collaborators.
