EqualX : Gui Tool for LaTeX Equations

It's been long time since I posted on my blog last time. I have found EqualX as awesome open source LaTeX equation editor which is rich in features than "LaTeX Equation Edit EE", I previously mentioned on this blog.



  • Large number of symbols and math expressions under symbol and math toolbar. Just click on the symbol buttons and EqualX automatically inserts the code. All you have to do is just fill inside {}.

  • Type TeX or LaTeX Type your equation in the best typesetting language for equations, TeX. You can paste in your existing equations and mix TeX code with click-and-click.
  • Syntax Highlighting - Type Easier The equation editor helps you type equations easier with syntax highlighting.

  • Code Completion - Type Faster Code completion helps you type faster with suitable hints.

  • Save the equations to graphic png extension so that it can be used in documentations.

I used MikTeX distribution of LaTeX. EqualX requires MikTeX 2.8 or higher versions.

You can obtain MikTeX distribution from the site: http://miktex.org/

I suggest to install full version of MikTeX.

If you have installed the basic version of MikTeX, EqualX needs esint package. This package can be downloaded either by internet connection (which in my case, does not work!) via missing package dialog box or manually by searching on the link http://ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages.

To install the package, MikTeX needs local repository directory. Just download miktex-zzdb1-2.8.tar.lzma and miktex-zzdb2-2.8.tar.lzm where 2.8 is the version name at http://ctan.binkerton.com/ctan.php?filename=systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/miktex-zzdb1-2.8.tar.lzma and http://ctan.binkerton.com/ctan.php?filename=systems/win32/miktex/tm/packages/miktex-zzdb2-2.8.tar.lzma respectively ( you can change 2.8 according to your MikTeX vesions) and put them in the folder you have downloaded the esint package.

EqualX is still in development. I hope that future release of this wonderful software will contain many useful features and improvements.
