# LaTeX and MathJax Plugin

# Welcome

**Latex** is an app for Atlassian Confluence that allows to render and display complex mathematical notation in web browsers. Our native Latex add-on had only one availability to render the macro by using the TEX - typesetting system. Latex plugin is using native binaries hosted on your instance. It gives the output as a png image. Since the Latex 1.6.0 version, it has an additional feature which is calling **MathJax**, which is an open-source JavaScript display engine for LaTeX, MathML, and AsciiMath notation that works in all modern browsers.

This plug-in can be installed and updated via Confluence's built-in Find new add-ons section under Confluence Administration, or via the LaTeX Plugin listing on the Atlassian Marketplace website.

In order to make this add-on available for current versions of Confluence, ownership has been taken on by The Plugin People. The reference to Stepstone remains to give kudos to the original authors.
