This plugin provides a teximg directive, that renders LaTeX formulas into images.

You will need LaTeX installed for this to work, specifically something providing latex in the path. You will also need either dvipng or a combination of dvips and convert from ImageMagick/GraphicsMagick.

On Debian systems, the relevant package names are texlive-latex-base and either dvipng or graphicsmagick-imagemagick-compat.


There are several configuration directives that can be used in the setup file. teximg_prefix can be set to change the LaTeX preamble, and teximg_postfix to change the LaTeX postfix. The teximg_dvipng setting can be set to 0 to disable use of dvipng, and instead force use of dvips and convert.
