## Requesting to install Extension:Math to this wiki

Usage examples: to explain how lambda calculus works, using TeX-style mathematical expression, what features () has, and use TeX-style equations everywhere.--YamTokTpaFa (talk) 08:04, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

- It's been on the TODO list, though looks like the landscape has changed since I last looked at this.
- I can't really tell if the current documentation implies it's okay for anyone to use Wikipedia's Mathoid server, or whether you have to run your own. The bit where (for the Mathoid CLI setup) it says "Raise MediaWiki's memory limit to 1.2G" makes me a little worried about running it locally. The MathJax client-side option (which I thought about using, previously) is now deprecated, though there's Extension:SimpleMathJax instead.
- If it's okay to use Wikipedia's API, or if Extension:SimpleMathJax seems sufficient, then I could probably set that up during the next MediaWiki upgrade. --fizzie (talk) 09:18, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
