#1676 closed enhancement (fixed)

Corrections and enhancements.

Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


Attached is an enhanced version of this interesting plugin. It contains the following stuff:

  • Corrected a bug where dvipng was invoked with imgname instead of imgpath.
  • Added support for configuring parameteres on trac.ini. This parameterers are supported: cache_dir, latex_cmd and dvipng_cmd. Example configuration for my windows machine with MikTex:
cache_dir = c:/TEMP
latex_cmd = c:/apps/miktex/miktex/bin/latex.exe
dvipng_cmd = c:/apps/miktex/miktex/bin/dvipng.exe
  • Images are centered vertically.
  • Support for writing latex math in the usual way, i.e.: {{{$\pi \over 2 $}}} (Please observe the space before the closing $.) This feature is a bit controversial. It remains to be seen the implications of using the dollar sign for as a delimiter. This feature can be easily removed by deleting the IWikiSyntaxProvider methods.


  • Sanity checking for trac.ini parameters.
  • trac.ini entries for parameters for dvipng and latex.
  • Some system for deleting old entries on the cache.
  • Support for international characters withing Latex text. Right now, writing something like [[latex($á$)]] produces a traceback.
