    3. Add MathType buttons to the TinyMCE5 toolbar and the recommended settings:

       toolbar: 'tiny_mce_wiris_formulaEditor tiny_mce_wiris_formulaEditorChemistry',
       // We recommend to set 'draggable_modal' to true to avoid overlapping issues
       // with the different UI modal dialog windows implementations between core and third-party plugins on TinyMCE.
       // @see:
       draggable_modal: true,
       // You could set a different language for MathType editor:
       // language: 'fr_FR',
       // mathTypeParameters: {
       //   editorParameters: { language: 'fr' },
       // },

      Notice the example assumes this directory structure:


    Known issues

    This npm module uses remotely hosted services to render MathML data. However, we recommend you install these services on your backend. This will allow you, among other things, to configure the service and to locally store the images generated by MathType.

    The services are available for Java, PHP, .NET and Ruby on Rails. If you use any of these technologies, please download the plugin for your backend technology from here.

    In order to install the plugin along with the correspondent services, please follow the TinyMCE5 install instructions.

    Displaying on Target Page

    In order to display mathematical formulas on the target page, i.e. the page where content produced by the HTML editor will be visible, the target page needs to include the MathType script. For example for the default setting this would be:

    <script src=""></script>
