HUJI Moodle Latex Fixer

Moodle has an annoying bug, the latex plugin (the one used to display math equations) doesn’t work well with chrome.

For example, The following screen shot was taken from one of my quizzes in moodle:

I’ve written a simple chrome plugin that will fix this annoying problem…

Tex The World (Improved)

Tex The World is a chromium extensions that allows you to use \LaTeX everywhere on the web. Of course, It only be visible for those who have the extension installed.

The original version was written by Avital Oliver for Firefox. And then was wrapped by Rodrigo for chromium.

The big difference in my version is that I’m using my server to render latex (therefor, I can add packages! If you me to add one, just comment on the post with the package name), and I’ve changed the syntax a bit. Instead of [; ;], I’ve decided to use the following syntax:

$latex latex-code-here $

Let me know if you got any ideas for further improvements.

The following “joke” is in Hebrew because it doesn’t translate as well in English. Sorry.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions

Thanks to Ori Katz for the general idea.

Does anyone have a proof for that?
