Import Content in myscript-math-web

I was previously able to import latex formatted math into the myscript-math-web component using code such as the following:


mathInput.importContent({ x: 50, y: 50 },"a^2+b^2=c^2","application/x-latex");

 A while ago this stopped working without warning. I have looked at your documentation here

and see that Importing Content is now listed under Experimental with the warning

"Demonstration of existing technology still limited. May not work. Contact us if you are willing to use it."

I am willing to use it, and so am attempting to contact you to figure out how. The demo that is linked on that site suggests that the new syntax to for importing content looks like:

mathInput.import_("a^2+b^2=c^2", "application/x-latex");

However this does not work for me, and does not appear to work on the web demo as well - doing so raises an error "mime type not supported" and then disconnects from the recognition server.

Is there currently any way to re-enable content importing in myscript-math-web, and if so, how can I do it?

Thank you,


Hi Benjamin,

Thanks for your feedback. Sadly we have to remove the Latex import from our API as we support a small set of equation and because we faced some server instability with some equation. Fixing those bugs and have a strong API will take time. I will keep you posted once we reactivate the feature.

Out of curiosity what is you use case ? How the Latex import was helpful for it ?

Best regards

Hi Benjamin,

We released recently iink 1.2 (the mail to announce it will be send soon) and we add back the Latex support for testing purpose only. We change the mime type and you really should be aware that the feature is not production ready. We hope to announce a release date soon as you are not the first developer to ask for it.
