    gammalatex

    NPM

    A simple latex wrapper for the pdflatex binary.

    You don't have to worry about rerunning pdflatex in order to get the cross-references right.

    Prerequisites

    You must have pdflatex installed (or another LaTeX command, see setCompileCommand below).

    Linux: sudo yum install texlive-latex

    Mac OS: MacTeX

    Installation

    npm install --save gammalatex

    Then var latex = require("gammalatex"); on any node.js file.

    API

    • .parse(string, callbackFunction)
      string: String containing valid latex syntax
      callbackFunction: A function that will be called after parsing your string. Signature: callbackFunction(err, readStream)

    • .setPreParseHook(callbackFunction)
      callbackFunction: A function that will be called before running pdflatex. Signature: callbackFunction(params, cb)

    • .setPostParseHook(callbackFunction)
      callbackFunction: A function that will be called after running pdflatex. Signature: callbackFunction(params, cb)

    • .addRerunIndicator(string)
      string: A string to check against pdflatex log output to determine whether pdflatex must be rerun.

    • .setCompileCommand(object)
      object: An object with one mandatory field: command gives the name of the latex command, for example 'pdflatex', 'xelatex', etc. An optional options field gives an array of additional command-line options. An optional texpath field gives a value for the TEXINPUTS environment variable, used to specify additional search paths for latex files and packages.

    Usage

    var 
        util = require("util"),
        latex = require("gammalatex"),
        fs = require("fs");
     
    var string = [
                  "\\documentclass{article}",
                  "\\begin{document}",
                  "Gammasoft Desenvolvimento de Software Ltda",
                  "\\end{document}"
                  ].join("\n");
     
    latex.parse(string, function(err, readStream){
        if(err) throw err;
        
        var writeStream = fs.createWriteStream("output.pdf");
        util.pump(readStream, writeStream);
    });
