Hello to all !

It's great to be able to learn to program thanks to Replit.
Thank you for that !!

Is it possible to complete the markdown editor to be able to use jsmath?

Thanks in advance

@RYANTADIPARTHI Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean

markdown does not support jsmath.

It just wasn't in the spec.

No doubt ... But I said "complete" ....

With Stackedit for example, the possibility exists.

But I do not refuse to tinker a little ...

thanks in advance

erm that's not markdown anymore
that's an enhanced type of markdown.

The markdown 'specification' nowhere says to require the support for jsmath. @Jean_FrancoisIn

What do you mean? What is jsmath? Where have you been?

I would like to be able to write latex mathematical formulas like $ x ^ 2 = \ dfrac {1} {2} $

@Jean_FrancoisIn That's not markdown, maybe you have another language in mind?

Is that Latex?

@Jean_FrancoisIn Seems like a non-standard extension, Repl doesn't even correctly support Markdown as-is, so I doubt that they'll ever support anything non-standard.

You can download, install, and setup a Markdown parser and add the extensions yourself though.

Not sure how well it'll work out, but good luck.

Just try to install whatever markdown parsing+rendering program you use on your PC, onto Repl.

@xxpertHacker Maybe you have the reference to a tutorial to do this? Thank you

@Jean_FrancoisIn Umm, unfortunately, I don't.

But first, what program do you use that supports mathjsx in Markdown?

Hope I ain't bothering you @Coder100, but would you be interested in helping 'em out w/ my suggestion?

Wdym

complete the markdown editor to be able to use jsmath?

?

Do you want like to put pieces of code? If yes, you can add code blocks with the 3 backslashes () and addjs` after it for syntax highlighting:

// your code here

Is that what you wanted? Lemme know! :D

not exactly. I would like to be able to write latex mathematical formulas like $x ^ 2 = \ dfrac {1} {2}$
Thanks

@Jean_FrancoisIn ah in that case I don't think repl.it supports that (I don't think that's markdown anyways). You could suggest it in feedback :)
