LaTeX Handwritten Symbol Recognition, Hacker News


Want a Mac app?


            Lucky you. The Mac app is finally stable enough.             See how it works on Vimeo .             Download the latest version              here .           


             Restriction: In addition to the LaTeX command the unlicensed version will copy a reminder to purchase a license to the clipboard             when you select a symbol.           


            You can purchase a license here:                           Buy Detexify for Mac           


            If you need help contact              [email protected] .                        


What is this?


            Anyone who works with LaTeX knows how time-consuming it can be             to find a symbol in              symbols-a4.pdf             that you just can’t memorize. Detexify is an attempt to simplify this search.           


How do I use it?


            Just draw the symbol you are looking for into the square area above and look what happens!           


My symbol isn’t found!


            The symbol may not be trained enough             or it is not yet in the list of supported symbols.              In the first case you can do the training yourself.             In the second case just drop me a line ([email protected])!              I am rewriting parts right now and training is not functional in this version.           


I like this. How can I help?


             You could spare some time training Detexify.             You could also look at the source of the              frontend             and              backend             on Github.             If you really, really like this             you can also donate.           


            The backend server is running on Digital Ocean (referral link)             so you can also reduce my hosting costs by using that referral link.           


Why should I donate?


            Hosting of detexify costs some money. If Detexify helps you, you might want to help cover these costs.           


This doesn’t work at all!?


            Be sure you use a modern browser. A recent version of              Chrome             or              Firefox             should do the trick.           


Do you support Unicode?


            No. Have a look at                 for Unicode.           


I am a researcher. Can I use Detexify’s training data?




Who created Detexify?


            Philipp Kühl had the initial idea and              Daniel Kirsch             made it happen.
