The ideal WordPress LaTeX plugin

A LaTeX plugin ought to be useful for scientific blogging, it should allow — within reason — the creation of not only inline and displayed equations but also different kinds of figures.

Features:

  • It should offer the possibility to enter displayed equations using something like LaTeX’s $$ ... $$ syntax.
  • Support for commonly used environments like align, eqnarray, etc.
  • Support for drawing figures using TikZ including the ability to use circuitikz for schematics
  • The quality of the rendered images should be as good as possible
  • Match baseline of text to baseline of inline equations (either by carefully choosing a bounding box for the rendered image or setting the vertical-align attribute based on whether the equation contains displayed math like big integral signs)
