README

This plugin provides an editor to edit LaTeX document in Neos, with conversion to HTML. The current conversion toolkit used is ht4latex, you need to have a work LaTeX distribution on your server to use the plugin.

Note: currently this plugin use sudo to execute ht4latex. Without that the command line tools failed for a unknown reason, certainly related to www-data environement variables or shell. If you have a solution for that, your are welcome, just contact me or open an issue.

Note: this package is still experimental and may change heavily in the near future.

Configure sudo

Note: don't do that on your production server, it's a huge security problem.

Edit the file /etc/sudoers and add the following line:

%www-data	ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

On Mac OS, replace www-data by _www. This plugin is not tested on Windows.

A docker container to host the LaTeX toolchain

The full LaTeX toolchain can be really big, and as a system administrator I don't like to install all those stuff on a production system. I will work on Docker container to host the full LaTeX toolchain. The container can be executed only for conversion process. Let's try ... but I see a nice use case for Docker here.
