Sept. 28, 2009 - PRLog -- The site is one (new) way of handling latex projects. It uses serveral different technologies like HTML, JavaScript and Ajax to fit the look and feel to applications everybody knows. It is not needed to download or install any software (except a pdf-viewer which is installed on most machines) since the browser takes care for displaying the generated pdf.

The generation of the pdf takes place "behind the scenes" on a special server which executes all latex commands. Due to dynamic pattern recognition the server knows when to re-run certain commands and can, as a result, assure that the generated pdf is created and displayed correctly (some latex editors require to run several commands more than once).

Daniel Kuster, founder of, says that it is necessary to "offer the users of a web application the same functionality as their stand-alone counterparts". Though, is only one step in the area of web development.

The service is offered at and can be used for free.
